The Mockingbird New Door is a remarkably well written book about the life of famed author Harper Lee. To Kill a Mockingbird remains a standard of the American classroom. It is by all definitions a classic. Yet, little is known about its author Harper Lee – that is, until now. Marja Mills presents a detailed view of the celebrated author and her sisters. The writing is excellent. The research is excellent. The book is (you guessed it) excellent.

Reading about Harper Lee is always interesting; however, I'm not certain about this author's methods.

    To take advantage of a neighbor acquaintance

    And blow it into a friendship and then "tell all" is what one would expect from a national inquirer. If an author prefers privacy after so many years and not want to keep explaining why and no more stories means she didnt have anything more to tell. Since she did not aprove mightbe well to turn over half the royalties to her as an apolgy.

    This story is more about the author than Harper Lee. The stories

    This story is more about the author than Harper Lee. The stories are repeated so as to fill out the book. I really question how well she knows
    Miss Lee. I was very disappointed.

    Not what I expected

    Interesting from a historical detail perspective, but I will not be recommending it to my friends and family.
