Harper Lee, Author of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird,’ Dies at 89 - The New York Times
I did enjoy this obit for Harper Lee last week.
One thing I am curious about: it reminded me that she had said her father (a lawyer) was the model for Atticus Finch, and according to her obit, she appeared in photos with him in a profile done once she was famous.
But, with To Set A Watchman, which was virtually an early (although very different) draft of Mockingbird, she painted a father with racist attitudes.
So, has anyone worked out what the true attitude of her father was?
