Now available together in a special boxed set, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Harper Lee’s bestselling novels To Kill a Mockingbird and Go Set a Watchman.

Set in the small town of Maycomb, Alabama, and featuring characters that have become indelible in American culture, Harper Lee’s beloved classic of Southern literature, To Kill a Mockingbird and her newly found novel, Go Set a Watchman, offer a haunting portrait of race and class, innocence and injustice, hypocrisy and heroism, tradition and transformation in the Deep South of the 1930s and 1950s that resonates today.

Enduring in vision, Harper Lee’s timeless novels illuminate the complexities of human nature and the depths of the human heart with humor, unwavering honesty, and a tender, nostalgic beauty, and will be celebrated by generations to come.

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.… (more)
