Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird captured the essence of the South at one of its most pivotal times. First published in 1960, it was "the Huckleberry Finn of the 20th century," declared biographer Charles Shields: "It holds up an ideal of tolerance and compassion that was laudable and very teachable." The novel became an immediate bestseller and won the 1961 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. After Lee's death, author Scott Turow said: "her one real novel will be an intimate part of our lives for a long, long time to come."
A fine signed copy.
