Harper Lee’s second novel

Fifty years after her famed only novel, Harper Lee is set to release her second book, written before “To Kill a Mockingbird” but never published. “‘In the mid-1950s, I completed a novel called “Go Set a Watchman,”’ the 88-year-old Lee said in a statement issued by Harper. “It features the character known as Scout as an adult woman, and I thought it a pretty decent effort. My editor, who was taken by the flashbacks to Scout’s childhood, persuaded me to write a novel (what became ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’) from the point of view of the young Scout.”” Read more here.
