___________________________________
‘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 falsely charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to 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 of one man’s struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much.
To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story, an anti-racist novel, a historical drama of the Great Depression and a sublime example of the Southern writing tradition.

Review

Lee explores with
exuberant humourthe irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. ―
The Week

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 ―
