Harper Lee Quotation Of The Day

Go Set A Watchman” is published today. Many of the reviews have been tough (so I hear: I will read the book first). But there were dislikers when “To Kill A Mockingbird” was published. One of them was Harper Lee’s fellow Southerner Flannery O’Connor, whose work I have always found terrifically overrated. O’Connor said of “Mockingbird”: ‘It’s interesting that all the folks that are buying it don’t know they are reading a children’s book.” O’Connor did not mean that was written from the point of view of a child; she meant that it was meant to appeal to a child’s mentality. Jealous much?
