The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.

Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior-to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 15 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.

From the Publisher:
Regarded as a masterpiece of American literature, this timeless story of growing up in the South became an instant bestseller when first published in 1960 and later was made into a classic film.
Annotation:
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD is about the crisis of human behavior and conscience arising from the racism and prejudice that exist in the small Southern town during the Depression. Scout Finch, age 8, who lives with her brother, Jem, and their lawyer father, Atticus, in Maycomb, Alabama, tells the story of her father's defense of Tom Robinson, a young black man who is being tried for the rape of a white woman. Harper Lee's only novel, first published in 1960 and awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1961, is a much-beloved tale of growing up, as well as an exploration of heroism confronted with bigotry.
Author Bio
Harper Lee
Born in Alabama, (Nelle) Harper Lee attended Huntingdon College from 1944 to 1945, studied law at the University of Alabama from 1945 to 1949, and spent a year at Oxford University. In the 1950s, she worked as an airline clerk in New York while she worked on her novel, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. Initially rejected, the novel was finally published after two more years of rewriting, winning the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1961. A movie was made in 1962 starring Gregory Peck, who won an Academy Award for his portrayal of the lawyer Atticus Finch. (Lee modeled the character Dill on her close friend Truman Capote, whom she lived next door to as a child.) After the enormous success of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, Harper Lee never published another book, refuses to give interviews, and lives a reclusive life in Alabama and New York City. In her introduction to a reissue of the novel, she wrote, "I am still alive, although very quiet." Few people even know what she looks like. The Monroeville, Alabama courthouse--the fictional model for the courthouse in her novel (the movie was also filmed there)--is now a museum of Harper Lee/Truman Capote memorabilia.

It seems funny to me that I’m writing a review of To Kill a Mockingbird. This is a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel that has sold 30 million copies worldwide and is never out of print. This is a novel consistently read by high school students across the country and was selected by the National Endowment of the Arts for its Big Read program designed to revitalize the role of literary reading in American popular culture. Time magazine also included To Kill a Mockingbird in its Top 100 novels of all-time list. So why is there a review of To Kill a Mockingbird here on BlogCritics? Well, Harper Lee’s universally loved and admired novel recently turned 50....read the full review

"Atticus Finch being spat upon without spitting back and Ben-Hur choosing not to kill Messala. Those are lessons. Mercy. Tolerance. Those burned in my imagination." - Gus Lee May/June 1995
