To Kill a Mockingbird: Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina and quiet heroism of one man's struggle for justice--but the weight of history will only tolerate so much.
Go Set a Watchman: Taking place 20 years after the events of To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman looks at the characters of the world famous novel as they adjust to the turbulent political events of the mid-1950s in America. Jean-Louise Finch (known in her childhood as Scout) is making a visit back to Maycomb, Alabama where she confronts the ghosts of her own past. Moving, funny and compelling, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating light on the famous To Kill a Mockingbird, and stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.
Now, for the first time ever, these two magnificent novels will be packaged together, becoming the perfect gift for Harper Lee's millions of fans.
