It's difficult to put into words how much I love "To Kill a Mockingbird". Harper Lee was an extraordinary author, and by all accounts a first-rate human being.
Her novel is by turns funny, thrilling, inspiring, and heart-breaking. The human experience breathes and bleeds all over its pages. If you're not familiar with Mockingbird, it's well worth your time to give it a read or watch the wonderful film.
Rest easy, Miss Lee.
