Published by Indranil Sarkar
'To Kill a Mokingbird' is not only the sole published novel of Harper Lee, in many ways, it is her soul also. Probably it is the most widely read book dealing with race in America, and its protagonist, Atticus Finch, the most enduring fictional image of racial heroism. "The novel had an effect of a duel faced knife. It made her a remarkable writer on the one hand and ended her career in putting her into the centre of a very sensitive and oft dared-not to be spoken even by the most outspoken social thinkers’ social issues of ‘Race and Rape’ on the other.”
