Harper Lee‘s ‘Go Set A Watchman’ Features Iconic Characters All Grown Up

10 July 2015

The first chapter of Harper Lee’s new book, “Go Set A Watchman,” ran in Friday’s editions of The Wall Street Journal and The Guardian, and the iconic characters from To Kill A Mockingbird have come a long way. Atticus Finch is 72 and suffering from rheumatoid arthritis; Scout is a grown woman who has a suitor most anxious to marry her. And Scout’s older brother, Jem, apparently has died. The book takes place in the 1950s, 20 years after To Kill A Mockingbird. Much of the excerpt published deals with the landscape and history of the fictional town of Maycomb and the banter between Clinton and Scout, who playfully resists his marriage proposals. The book hits shelves July 14.

On the site of British daily The Guardian, there is an extract from Go Set a Watchman, the new novel by Harper Lee, author of To Kill a Mockingbird.
