Go Set a Watchman Press Reviews

'A new work, and a pleasure, revelation and genuine literary event...Go Set a Watchman shakes the settled view of both an author and her novel...This publication intensifies the regret that Harper Lee published so little.' -- Mark Lawson, Guardian

'Go Set a Watchman is the more radical, ambitious and politicised of the two novels Lee has now published...It has contemporary relevance where Mockingbird is safely sealed off as a piece of American history...It does not undermine Mockingbird but it makes a reassessment of that story absolutely necessary...It is a book of enormous literary interest...Beguiling and distinctive, and reminiscent of Mockingbird...Go Set a Watchman can't be dismissed as literary scraps from Lee's imagination. It has too much integrity for that.' Arifa Akbar, Independent
