Editorial Reviews

Review

“You come away from Murphy’s book with a renewed amazement at what Lee was able to achieve with a single perfect novel.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“And that’s really what reading this book is like: attending a big book club meeting with 26 lovers of To Kill a Mockingbird.” (Los Angeles Times)

From the Back Cover

Harper Lee’s first and only novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, published in July 1960, is not only a beloved classic but also a touchstone in American literary and social history. It may well be our national novel.

With Scout, Atticus, and Boo, Mary McDonagh Murphy commemorates more than half a century of To Kill a Mockingbird by exploring the great novel’s history and how it has left its indelible mark. In compelling interviews, Anna Quindlen, Tom Brokaw, Oprah Winfrey, James Patterson, James McBride, Scott Turow, Wally Lamb, Andrew Young, Richard Russo, Adriana Trigiani, Rick Bragg, Jon Meacham, Allan Gurganus, Diane McWhorter, Lee Smith, Rosanne Cash, and others reflect on their own personal connections to Lee’s literary masterpiece, what it means to them—then and now—and how it ultimately has affected their lives and careers.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Certainly one of the most important novels written by an American has to be "To Kill A Mockingbird". It is Harper Lee's masterpiece. It is also the only novel she ever wrote. Still if as an author you only had one book in you to write this would be that one book! Possibly no book has had more impact on American society then "Mockingbird" and still does to this day. The movie that would be made based on the novel and starring Gregory Peck has become one of the most beloved films of all time. The book "Scout, Atticus, and Boo: A Celebration of To Kill A Mockingbird" looks at how much the novel has influenced Americans everywhere. It is a touching look at what this book by Harper Lee means to the country and its people. Written by Mary McDonagh Murphy it is her tribute to the Pulitzer prize winning book and perhaps the greatest novel of the 20th century.

The book itself makes for a pleasent read. It is a short book only about 215 pages or so. It can easily be read in one evening. Still while it is a book I would recommend it would only be to those who have never read the book or scene the movie. For those who are fans of the book and/or the movie you may find there is not too much new revelations here. That doesn't mean it isn't worthwhile reading but don't expect anything new about the book or the author you didn't already know. What makes the book interesting to read is the section where various famous people from Oprah Winfrey to Tom Brokaw to Colin Powell among others telling in their own words what "To Kill A Mockingbird" meant to them and how it affected their lives. You will probably find yourself after reading this book pulling out your copy of "Mockingbird" and start reading it.
