& #8220 Go Set a Watchman is such an important book, perhaps the most important novel on race to come out of the white South in decades.& #8221 & #8212 Clay Risen, New York Times Maycomb, Alabama. Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch& #8212 & #8220 Scout& #8221 & #8212 returns home from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise& #8217 s homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town, and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt. Featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past& #8212 a journey that can only be guided by one& #8217 s own conscience. Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor, and effortless precision& #8212 a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. It not only confirms the enduring brilliance of To Kill a Mockingbird but also serves as its essential companion, adding depth, context, and new meaning to an American classic. & #8220 Harper Lee& #8217 s second novel sheds more light on our world than its predecessor did.& #8221 & #8212 Time& #8220 Provides valuable insight into the generous, complex mind of one of America& #8217 s most important authors.& #8221 & #8212 USA Today
