"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 a painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past -- a journey that can be guided only by one's conscience. Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor, and effortless precision -- a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. It not only confirms the enduring brilliance of To Kill a Mockingbird, but also serves as its essential companion, adding depth, context, and new meaning to an American classic." -- Book jacket

Ve y pon un centinela : [una novela] by Harper Lee( Sound Recording )
3 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 40 libraries worldwide
"Originally written in the mid-1950s, 'Go set a watchman' was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before 'To kill a mockingbird.' Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014. 'Go set a watchman' features many of the characters from 'To kill a mockingbird' some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch--Scout--struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her. Exploring how the characters from 'To kill a mockingbird' are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, 'Go set a watchman' casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee's enduring classic."--From publisher's description
