Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee, 278 pages
I really enjoyed this book. Yes, yes, there is the controversy of Atticus. How could Harper Lee have changed him? Well, this book was set in the 1960s during desegregation and I think Ms. Lee did a good job of portraying how many (especially older) southern white middle class people felt at the time.
Scout is now known as Jean Louise and has lived in New York for five years and is just as shocked as the rest of us to learn how her father feels about desegregation. Was it really written by Harper Lee? I don't know. All I know is, I'm glad I read it.
