The stunning true story of an Alabama serial killer, and the trial that obsessed the author of To Kill a Mockingbird in the years after the publication of her classic novel — a complicated and difficult time in her life. This is a vividly told, elegiac account of Harper Lee’s quest to write a second book after To Kill a Mockingbird, and a deeply moving portrait of this beloved writer’s struggle with fame, success, and the mysteries of artistic creativity.
