New York, NY: Henry Holt. (2016) First Revised Edition. Signed. As new in dust jacket.

A revised and updated edition of the bestselling biography of Harper Lee, reframed from the perspective of the recent publication of Lee's Go Set a Watchman.

To Kill a Mockingbird—the twentieth century's most widely read American novel—has sold thirty million copies and still sells a million yearly. In this in-depth biography, first published in 2006, Charles J. Shields brought to life the woman who gave us two of American literature's most unforgettable characters, Atticus Finch and his daughter Scout.

Now, ten years after its initial publication, with revisions throughout the book and a new Epilogue, Shields brings us up to date on all the major Harper Lee events since 2006. There's the scandal of Lee's former agent trying to steal the copyright for To Kill a Mockingbird, the death of Lee's dear sister Alice, a fuller portrait of Lee’s editor, Tay Hohoff, and—most vitally—the release of Lee's long buried first novel and the ensuing public devouring of what has truly become the book of the year, if not the decade: Lee's Go Set a Watchman.
