"Maycomb, Alabama. Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch -- "Scout"--Returns home from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise's homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt. Featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in a painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past -- a journey that can be guided only by one's conscience. Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor, and effortless precision -- a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. It not only confirms the enduring brilliance of To Kill a Mockingbird, but also serves as its essential companion, adding depth, context, and new meaning to an American classic."--

Pojdi, postavi stražarja by Harper Lee( Book )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in Slovenian and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pričujoče delo je bilo napisano že leta 1957, toda prvič objavljeno šele 2015. Vsebinsko se nanaša na avtoričin roman Če ubiješ oponašalca in je bilo sprva oglaševano kot samostojni roman, za katerega se je kasneje izkazalo, da je dejansko prvi. V romanu Pojdi, postavi stražarja tako srečamo iste karakterje iz obeh zgodb, toda 20 let kasneje. Odrasla Jean Louise (Scout) Finch vsako leto pripotuje iz New Yorka v svoje rojstno mesto Maycomb, ko nekoč ob svojem prihodu začuti nekaj drugačnega. Mesto se spopada tako z družbeno-socialnimi problemi kot tudi s političnimi, med prebivalci vladajo močni rasistični nemiri. Jean Louise nehote postane priča zagrizenemu zagovorništvu rasizma s strani svojega očeta, kar jo močno pretrese. Postane razpeta med svojega ljubljenega očeta in lastna prepričanja in vpeta v vprašanje, ali sploh lahko odpusti osebi, katera ji je vse življenje lagala o svojih prepričanjih. Roman o viharnem dogajanju v Ameriki v 50-tih letih
The Harper Lee audio collection : To kill a mockingbird [and] Go set a watchman by Harper Lee( Recording )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To Kill a Mockingbird--Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina and quiet heroism of one man's struggle for justice--but the weight of history will only tolerate so much. Go Set a Watchman--Taking place 20 years after the events of To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman looks at the characters of the world famous novel as they adjust to the turbulent political events of the mid-1950s in America. Jean-Louise Finch (known in her childhood as Scout) is making a visit back to Maycomb, Alabama where she confronts the ghosts of her own past

Ne bántsátok a feketerigót! by Harper Lee( Book )

17 editions published between 1965 and 2018 in Hungarian and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Pulitzer-díjas bestsellerben egy ártatlan színes bőrű férfi sorsa körül csapnak össze az amerikai Dél előítéletei és a számszerű kisebbségben, de erkölcsi fölényben lévő, újat reprezentáló, humánus erők. A középpontban a három gyermekét egyedül nevelő Finch ügyvéd áll, ő és a többi pozitív hős szinte hibátlan egyéniség, az írónő meleg, emberi színekkel jellemzi őket. A rosszat jelképezők gátlás nélkülien gonoszak. Köztük az álmos kisváros kispolgári lakói ügyesen megformált, humorral bemutatott, hitelesen bizonytalankodó figurák. Leleményes fogása a három kisgyerek szerepeltetése, akiknek szemén át az egész félelmetes históriát végigfigyeljük. A William Faulkner és más írók műveiben oly sokszor fölmerülő déli rémségek - a szobafogságra ítélt, félőrült fiú, ártatlanul halálba üldözött néger, éjszakai lincselésre készülő, fehér farmerek, bolond, bigott öregasszonyok - mind álomszerűvé válnak: a gyermekkor játékos derűje kissé elveszi komor realitásukat. Ez ugyan csökkenti a mű feszültségét, viszont épp a fiatal lelkek igazságkeresése teszi lehetővé az elfogulatlanul humánus álláspont kibontakoztatását, az állásfoglalás érzéki telítettségét
