Voted America's Best-Loved Novel in PBS's The Great American Read

Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred

One of the most cherished stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

In The Press

“A first novel of such rare excellence that it will no doubt make a great many readers slow down to relish more fully its simple distinction. . . . A novel of strong contemporary national significance.”

To kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
This an essential read for the American south social historian. Written to depict those differences between race that needed to be addressed in later decades. Equally it shows that during these embittered times of colour prejudice there were right-minded individuals who knew right from wrong what ever were the pressures from the norms of the day. This book belongs to that list of books that capture the gradual progress to equality but with a cost.

We're killing mocking birds everyday
Loved the book. It's so updated that we could say it had been written yesterday. The conversation between Atticus and his children after the trial should be learned by heart in every school. It was difficult for me to get into it at first because English isn't my mother tongue and the oral speech in writing raised some comprehension problems. After a while it became so enticing that I couldn't stop reading. Marvellous. Such a pity that we're still killing mocking birds.
