Mockingbird : a portrait of Harper Lee by Charles J Shields( Book )

26 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 3,509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To Kill a Mockingbird, the twentieth century's most widely read American novel, still sells a million copies yearly. Yet despite the book's perennial popularity, its creator remains a somewhat mysterious figure. Journalist Shields brings to life the warmhearted, high-spirited, and occasionally hardheaded woman who gave us two of American literature's most unforgettable characters--Atticus Finch and his daughter, Scout--and who contributed to the success of her lifelong friend Truman Capote's masterpiece, In Cold Blood. At the center of the book is Lee's struggle to create her famous novel. But her life contains many other highlights: her girlhood as a tomboy in overalls in tiny Monroeville, Alabama; the murder trial that made her father's reputation and inspired her great work; her journey to Kansas as Capote's ally and research assistant on the story of the Clutter murders; the surrogate family she found in New York City.--From publisher description

And so it goes : Kurt Vonnegut, a life by Charles J Shields( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kurt Vonnegut remains one of the most influential, controversial, and popular novelists of the twentieth century. While millions know him as a counterculture guru, antiwar activist, and satirist of American culture, few outside his closest friends and family knew the full arc of his extraordinary life. This book changes that as it paints the portrait of a man who made friends easily but always felt lonely, sold millions of books but never felt appreciated, and described himself as a humanist but fought with humanity at large. As a former public relations man, Vonnegut crafted his image carefully - the avuncular, curly-haired humorist - though he admitted, "I myself am a work of fiction." After five years of research, drawing on hundreds of interviews with Vonnegut, his family and his friends, this book reveals one of literature's most idiosyncratic, beloved, and enigmatic icons. It is the definitive biography of Kurt Vonnegut
