To Kill A MockingbirdHarper Lee
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.

Jeff Smith is a phenomenal cartoonist and its so good to see something new from him. This is a much more adult story than the Bone series, following the adventures of a dimension-hopping art thief. This first book develops pretty slowly, but my interest is peaked and I’ll definitely be reading the later volumes to see where this goes.
