About

Overview

A #1 New York Times Bestseller

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 painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past — a journey that can only be guided by one's own conscience.

Customer Reviews

"Go Set a Watchman provides valuable insight into the generous, complex mind of one of America's most important authors."

— USA Today

"Go Set a Watchman is such an important book, perhaps the most important novel on race to come out of the white South in decades . . ."

— New York Times

"Go Set a Watchman comes to us at exactly the right moment. All important works of art do. They come when we don't know how much we need them."

— Chicago Tribune
