To Kill a Mockingbird (Modern Classics) (Paperback)
"If you hand me a book and tell me I have to read it, it's going to be a slog for me; the quality almost doesn't matter when my sheer stubbornness comes into play. So it is a testament to the caliber of Harper Lee's masterpiece that - despite my first encounter with it as high school assigned reading - I've reread it multiple times. This book defines what a classic should be." - Andrew— From Andrew's Staff Picks
Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South--and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred
One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father--a crusading local lawyer--risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.
