Harper Lee’s book ar­rives af­ter 55 years

CityPress - - Voices -

The big­gest literary event of this year has un­doubt­edly been Harper Lee’s re­lease of her new book, which fi­nally came out this week.

It’s been 55 years since the re­lease of the cel­e­brated To Kill a Mock­ing­bird, con­sid­ered one of the great­est nov­els of the 20th cen­tury.

“Go Set a Watch­man is set dur­ing the mid-1950s and fea­tures many of the char­ac­ters from To Kill a Mock­ing­bird some 20 years later,” reads the book’s press re­lease.

The novel has al­ready set a HarperCollins record as the most pre­ordered book in the pub­lish­ing house’s history.
