Editorial Reviews:

Synopsis:

Regarded as a masterpiece of American literature, this timeless story of growing up in the South became an instant bestseller when first published in 1960 and later was made into a classic film.


Review:

"Atticus Finch being spat upon without spitting back and Ben-Hur choosing not to kill Messala. Those are lessons. Mercy. Tolerance. Those burned in my imagination."

Gus Lee, Mother Jones, May/June 1995

Review:

"[T]he perennially beloved and treacly account of growing up in a small Southern town during the Depression..To read the novel is, for most, an exercise in wish-fulfillment and self-congratulation, a chance to consider thorny issues of race and prejudice from a safe distance and with the comfortable certainty that the reader would never harbor the racist attitudes espoused by the lowlifes in the novel."

Francine Prose, Harper's, September 1999
