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...
