Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee

When this book was published about two years ago under somewhat mysterious circumstances, the reviews seemed mediocre to me. In fact, this is a really excellent book set about 20 years after the events described in To Kill A Mockingbird. This book is mostly about Jean Louise (Scout), now 26 years old, living in NY and visiting Macomb to see her elderly father Atticus. There is a heartbreakingly sad story at age 11, and a brilliantly funny episode from her high school grad. But the core of this book is about Scout’s relationship with Atticus, her saintly and principled father in the context of race relations. A wonderful read.
