Newly found manuscript gets hot sales because prior work is iconic and was made into a soul-touching movie. Is this sequel/prequel any good? Go Set a Watchman takes place maybe 20 years after To Kill a Mockingbird, but it was written first – I tried to understand it that way, but it gets a bit complicated.
Anyway I sure wasn’t expecting much, but as often happens when my expectations are low, I’m pleasantly surprised. This time however, I was somewhat disappointed. I guess I already knew the “bad” stuff – rejected, unpublished, lost 1st novel in which Lee presents our beloved Atticus Finch as a die-hard racist of the 1950s.
