Publisher Description

'ONE OF THE GREATEST AMERICAN NOVELS EVER WRITTEN'

'Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.'


A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel - a black man falsely charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s.

The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man's struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much.
________________________________
To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story, an anti-racist novel, a historical drama of the Great Depression and a sublime example of the Southern writing tradition.

More than a classic

Although considered a classic, Harper Lee’s style and clever story telling through the eyes of Scout (a young girl) creates an engaging story that reminds you to always question the “just is”.

It follows the story of Scout and her family as her father defends an African American man in court and the social response that follows. With the story being told by Scout, we see the world and story through the eyes of questioning innocence. The result: powerful commentary, interesting characters, and an undertone of social norms of the day.

A must read at least once in your lifetime.
