Angela I totally agree with your review :) I really enjoyed reading this book too, it's a classic that you can read and then come back to read again and still learn or realise something new everytime.

Thanks Cassandra! That's very kind of you to say.

Jim When Cinemark showed the film last fall (as part of their "Classics" series) I had to see it - what an absolutely charming treatment of this classic.

Dare I trot out a pernicious rumor? In the Plimpton-edited Oral Biography of Truman Capote, it is suggested that HE wrote Mockingbird for his childhood friend and compatriot (she accompanied him on his initial foray to Kansas after the Clutter Murders).

I don't believe it - but it shows how catty some in his circle were.

I guess when an author only puts out one book in their lifetime and is good friends with a more prolific writer, a rumor of that nature is possible. It does seem catty and unlikely.

Mikey B. It seems a shame such a good writer should have produced and be judged by only one book, but at least she made that one book something special.

Well said!
