My dad told me about this, and you, too, may have already heard about Harper Lee’s surprisingly controversial second book, Go Set a Watchman, to be released July 14, 2015. It’s set after To Kill a Mockingbird chronologically, but she wrote it first.
The main concerns seem to be, 1) that she might not really have authorized the book and her editors/lawyers are taking advantage of her, and 2) that it might not be as good. The second concern is absurd – so what if it’s not? It doesn’t diminish the original book. The first concern is more legitimate, but I haven’t seen any evidence for it yet. Yes, it’s a dramatic change for Lee, who always said she’d never publish another book, but people can change their minds, can’t they?
Have a good weekend!
