The sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird published 55 years later

In July 1960, Harper Lee published her first novel To Kill a Mockingbird which garnered immediate success, winning the Pulitzer Prize and becoming one of the most widely read novels in history. The success of the book extends into the present day and it has never been out of print since its publication. Lee was never to publish again although she collaborated with her childhood friend, Truman Capote in his also iconic In Cold Blood. So when the news that the manuscript of a sequel of sorts to this novel had been discovered, a manuscript which the author set aside to work on To Kill a Mockingbird, the whole literary community and her many fans were over the moon. Go Set a Watchman is set some 20 years later when ""Scout returns from New York to visit her father Atticus and has to grapple with issues both personal and political as she tries to understand both her father’s attitude toward society, and her own feelings about the place where she was born and spent her childhood. It is a joyous event that this novel has been discovered and that it will be published during the author's lifetime.
