A special edition to celebrate 50 years since the first publication of this unforgettable classic

"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."

A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel—a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina and quiet heroism of one man's struggle for justice—but the weight of history will only tolerate so much.

One of the best-loved classics of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned many distinctions since its original publication in 1960. It has won the Pulitzer Prize, been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, and been made into an enormously popular movie. It was also named the best novel of the twentieth century by librarians across the country (Library Journal). HarperCollins is proud to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the book's publication with this special hardcover edition.

Industry Reviews

"Someone rare has written this very fine novel, a writer with the liveliest sense of life and the warmest, most authentic humour. A touching book; and so funny, so likeable." * Truman Capote *
"There is humour as well as tragedy in this book, besides its faint note of hope for human nature; and it is delightfully written" * Sunday Times *
"No one ever forgets this book" * Independent *
"One of the best novels I remember ... uniquely unsentimental" * Guardian *
"Her book is lifted ... into the rare company of those that linger in the memory" * Bookman *

Would cherish to read this book over and over.


Great story, last read it when I was in High School many years ago, but have lost count on how many times I've seen the movie staring the great Gregory Peck, and will keep watching.

A brilliant expose of Southern American states


Concentration required to follow all the associated characters,but the book shows what rapid social changes have occurred in the Southern states of America in the last eighty or so years. A great read.

Harper Lee and Truman Capote - was this a collaboration?
