Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behaviour— to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humour and pathos - and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred. 

A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming of age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father - a crusading local lawyer - risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.  With warmth and understanding, Harper Lee brilliantly recreates not only her characters but a whole town and its way of life.  Scout and Jem Finch lose their innocence when their lawyer father defends a Negro charged with the rape of a white girl.  The lawyer is the town's conscience, but conscience makes more than cowards... 

“All the magic and truth that might seem deceptive or exaggerated in a factual account of a small town unfold beautifully in a new first novel called To Kill a Mockingbird. At a time when so many machine-tooled novels are simply documentaries disguised behind a few fictional changes, it is pleasing to recommend a book that shows what a novelist can accomplish with quite familiar situations … To Kill A Mockingbird opens the chrysalis of childhood quietly and dramatically … Miss Lee’s characters are people to cherish in this winning first novel by a fresh writer with something significant to say, south and north.”  –  The New York Times, 1960
