To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the best loved novels of the twentieth century. Yet for the last fifty years, the novelís celebrated author, Harper Lee, known to her friends as Nelle, has said almost nothing on the record.
But in 2001, Nelle and her sister, Alice Finch Lee, opened their door to Chicago Tribune journalist Marja Mills. It was the beginning of a long conversation ó and a wonderful friendship. Mills was given a rare opportunity to know Nelle, to be a part of the Leesí life in Alabama, and to hear them reflect on their upbringing, their corner of the Deep South, and how To Kill a Mockingbird affected their lives.
