TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, by Harper Lee
Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South — and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred.
The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill a Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film of the same name in 1962.
A gripping, heart-wrenching and wholly remarkable take of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father —a crusading local lawyer — risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal.
