HarperCollins Publisher Launches Harper Lee’s New Novel - "Go Set a Watchman" Automatic translate
The sensation in the book market. 55 years later, a second book by Harper Lee was released.
In the regiment of Pulitzer laureates, who were in the top ten with their only book, disappeared. Nelle Harper Lee left the ranks, having managed in her incomplete 90s to become one of the main newsmakers of the book market. Her "To Kill a Mockingbird" ("To Kill a Mockingbird") went on sale in July 1960. He was recognized as the best novel of the century, oscarously filmed and published in millions of copies. 55 years later, in July 2015, Harper Lee’s second novel, “Go Set a Watchman”, was released. It scatters like hot cakes and may not be the last forgotten work from Lee. The sensation took place with the filing of her lawyer, who discovered another bestseller in a bank safe.
The find turned out to be a sequel to The Mockingbird, whose heroes were 20 years older. “There are no others, but those are far away.” Not touched by editorial editing, tough, extremely frank in the description of sexual scenes - this is a real flip-flop novel catapulting a familiar story upside down. The werewolf book, written before “To Kill a Mockingbird”, debunked the father of the main character, Atticus Finch, who from a charming fighter against racism turns into an initiator of restricting the rights of black fellow citizens. And the matured heroine is applied to the bottle, knows firsthand about drugs and is forced to have an intimate relationship with the bastard who sells them. The Pulitzer Prize for Mockingbird is a credit not only to Lee herself, but also to the brilliant editor. Tay Hochoff. Having persuaded to postpone a plot untimely for the 60s, she helped create a book that became a moral reference point for several generations. Will a new old book become a revelation, time will tell.
