Description
							Maycomb, Alabama. Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch - "Scout" - returns home from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. 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. Featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past - a journey that can only be guided by one's own conscience. Now available in Spanish.
Reviews

"Don't let 'Go Set a Watchman' change the way you think about Atticus Finch...the hard truth is that a man such as Atticus, born barely a decade after Reconstruction to a family of Southern gentry, would have had a complicated and tortuous history with race." - Los Angeles Times

"[Go Set a Watchman] contains the familiar pleasures of Ms. Lee's writing - the easy, drawling rhythms, the flashes of insouciant humor, the love of anecdote." - The Wall Street Journal

"Watchman is compelling in its timeliness." - Washington Post

"The success of Go Set a Watchman...lies both in its depiction of Jean Louise reckoning with her father's beliefs, and in the manner by which it integrates those beliefs into the Atticus we know." - Time

"Go Set a Watchman's greatest asset may be its role in sparking frank discussion about America's woeful track record when it comes to racial equality." - San Francisco Chronicle
