In 2015 the world was stunned to learn that a long-lost manuscript of Lee's, written before "Mockingbird," had been found in a bank vault and was to be published.
Originally submitted in 1957, "Go Set a Watchman" features many of the same characters as "Mockingbird" but is set 20 years later, and presents versions of Scout and Atticus that challenge our current conceptions of them. (Lee's editor, Tay Hohoff, had recommended she focus her story on the woman's childhood.) The suggestion that Atticus would express bigoted views upset many, and prompted mixed reviews, but readers did not mind: "Go Set a Watchman" sold 1.6 million hardcover copies.
