To Kill a MockingbirdÃ¢ÂÂthe twentieth century's most widely read American novelÃ¢ÂÂhas sold thirty million copies and still sells a million yearly.

Shields brings to life the woman who gave us two of American literature's most unforgettable characters, Atticus Finch and his daughter, Scout.
Years after its initial publicationÃ¢ÂÂwith revisions throughout the book and a new epilogueÃ¢ÂÂShields finishes the story of Harper Lee's life, up to its end. There's her former agent getting her to transfer the copyright for To Kill a Mockingbird to him, the death of Lee's dear sister Alice, a fuller portrait of LeeÃ¢ÂÂs editor, Tay Hohoff, andÃ¢ÂÂmost vitallyÃ¢ÂÂthe release of Lee's long-buried first novel and the ensuing public devouring of what has truly become the book of the year, if not the decade: Lee's Go Set a Watchman.
