Harper Lee

Harper Lee is to publish a sequel to To Kill A Mockingbird.

I'm afraid I can't help thinking it's a bad idea. It's never going to create the same resonance as the original. It can only detract from it. I think we all have our own ideas of what kind of woman Scout Finch would have turned into. I think it's best left like that.

That said, I'll still buy it and read it...

There is some talk that her estate lawyer has manipulated her to do this and that she might be non compose mantis in her agreement to do so. Scandal or PR?

**non compos mentis

Damned autocorrect.
