On July 11, 1960, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD was published. GO SET A WATCHMAN will be published this Tuesday, 55 years later almost to the day. It’s a fabulous moment for readers and book publishing. The Wall Street Journal is running the first chapter, which you can read here. You can use the same link to listen to the first chapter read by Reese Witherspoon, who is the narrator of the audiobook (scroll down a bit on the right). I did both and look forward to reading/listening more on Tuesday. I was interviewed by the Journal, but you need to be a subscriber to read the whole piece, thus here is what I had to say: I am intrigued in part because it was written more than half a century ago. The book was written during the start of the Civil Rights era, and is told from the point of view of Scout as an adult. There is so much to talk about, as it was written first, before MOCKINGBIRD. I cannot wait to read the whole thing and see what readers have to say.
