This is a book review of Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee. This prequel to Lee’s classic To Kill a Mockingbird recounts an episode in the life of the fictional lawyer Atticus Finch several decades after he undertook the representation of a Black Man falsely accused of rape. Finch’s daughter Scout who narrates the earlier novel is now a grown woman and in a difficult relationship with her father because of his conventional racists beliefs.
