To Kill A Mockingbird




The bestselling, Pulitzer prize-winning classic.

Set in a sleepy town in South Alabama during the Great Depression in the 1930s, this multi-layered story dissects the white and black communities of the American South. Told with gentle humour, it focuses on religious turpitude and the ambivalence of adult morality.

Praise for To Kill A Mockingbird

“There is humour as well as tragedy in this book, besides its faint note of hope for human nature; and it is delightfully written in the now familiar Southern tradition”

Sunday Times

“Her book is lifted...into the rare company of those that linger in the memory...”

Bookman

“Someone rare has written this very fine novel, a writer with the liveliest sense of life and the warmest, most authentic humour. A touching book; and so funny, so likeable”

Truman Capote
