Friend: Harper Lee ‘a Bit Overwhelmed’ by Book Release

14 Jul 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Author Harper Lee’s ‘Go Set A Watchman’ Novel Now On Sale.

As “Go Set a Watchman’’ easily soared to the top of Amazon’s best-seller list, city residents snapped up their own copies of the book at stores around the five boroughs. In Lee’s second novel, Scout Finch discovers her 72-year-old father, Atticus Finch, has attended Klu Klux Klan meetings and advocates for segregation. Mekdad Muthana, 25, was the first to grab the tome at the Barnes & Noble in Union Square, arriving at 6:30 a.m. for the store’s early 7 a.m. opening. The new novel follows Scout Finch’s return home to the fictional town of Maycomb in the 1950s. “As you grow up, your views change and life changes you,” she said. “So, it’ll be very interesting to see this version compared to how the original story was.

It’s a must-read, a book I’ve always wanted every kid to read.” She is mostly deaf and blind, and there were concerns before “Watchman’’ was published that she was in no state to give her consent to its release after the work was discovered among her belongings. Before the February announcement of the discovery and release of “Watchman,” Lee had long said she would never publish another novel despite pressure from her publisher.
