Summary
Every man's island, Jean Louise, every man's watchman, is his conscience." / This book is an historic literary event: the publication of a newly discovered novel, the earliest known work from Harper Lee, the beloved, bestselling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, To Kill A Mockingbird. Go Set A Watchman, written originally in the mid-1950s, was the novel Harper Lee submitted to her publishers first before To Kill A Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014. Go Set A Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill A Mockingbird some twenty years later. Jean Louise Finch "Scout" returns home at twenty-six years of age, in Maycomb, Alabama, from New York City, New York, to visit Atticus, her aging father. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise's homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town, and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt. Go Set A Watchman, featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill A Mockingbird, captures a young woman, and a world, perfectly, in painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past; a journey that can only be guided by one's own conscience. Go Seat A Watchman, written in the mid-1950s, imparts an understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee, fuller and richer. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor, and effortless precision; a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. It not only confirms the enduring brilliance of To Kill A Mockingbird, but also serves as its essential companion
