Críticas:

"A worthwhile portrait of the artist." -- Janet Maslin

"As readable, convincing and engrossing as Lee's literary wonder."

"A fine, well-rounded portrait of Harper Lee. Mockingbird is good reading."

"A fascinating look at both Lee and her book. Shields manages to bring her vividly to life in this impressive biography."

"As amiable and unassuming as its subject...Shields nimbly escorts us through ÝHarper Lee's¨ progression from scrappy tomboy to wise-cracking, cigarette-smoking, fashion-resistant coed."

"Shields is a scrupulous journalist who respects ÝLee's¨ privacy even as he opens up her life. This biography will not disappoint those who loved the novel and the feisty, independent, fiercely loyal Scout in whom Harper Lee put so much of herself." -- Garrison Keillor

" Harper Lee caught the beauty of America with "To Kill a Mockingbird," but has remained something of a mystery ever since. Charles J. Shields' s portrait of her, "Mockingbird," shows us a quietly reclusive, down-to-earth woman with an enormous gift and documents her struggle to live with that gift for the rest of her life. Shields evocation of both the woman and her beautiful, sleepy, and smoldering South are pitch perfect." -- Anne River Siddons, author of "Sweetwater Creek" and other books " Harper Lee' s intense personal privacy sets daunting limitations for a biographer, but Charles Shields has ingeniously recovered the feel of her childhood world of Monroeville, Alabama, and the small-town Southern customs and vivid personalities that shaped her prickly independence. Detailed memories of Lee' s classmates and friends are interwoven with dramatic recreations of key events and stories of her friendships and literary collaborations, all fleshing out the general narrative of her development as a novelist. Close attention to her friendship with Truman Capote and the conditions of the writing and then the filming of" To Kill a Mockingbird" offer special fascination." -- Louise Westling, Professor of English, University of Oregon, author of "Sacred Groves and Ravaged Gardens: The Fiction of Eudora Welty, Carson McCullers, and Flannery O' Connor""" " If there is a great American novel, certainly "To Kill a Mockingbird" is it. But, for all of us who love it, its author has always been an enigma. Did Harper Lee really write this classic? And if she did, why didn' t she ever write another book? And who isHarper Lee, anyway? Finally, a writer has done the necessary research to reveal the surprising answers. To every "To Kill a Mockingbird" reader, I send this message: The story isn' t over. There' s so much more to come, and you' ll find it all in Charles Shields' delightful and insightful "Mockingbird,"" -- Homer Hickam, author of "Rocket Boys"

Reseña del editor:

"A fine, well-rounded portrait of Harper Lee. Mockingbird is good reading." Star-Tribune (Minneapolis)

"To Kill a Mockingbird" the twentieth century's most widely read American novel has sold thirty million copies and still sells a million yearly. Yet despite her book's perennial popularity, its creator, Harper Lee, has become a somewhat mysterious figure. Now, after years of research, Charles J. Shields brings to life the warmhearted, high-spirited, and occasionally hardheaded woman who gave us two of American literature's most unforgettable characters Atticus Finch and his daughter, Scout.

At the center of Shields's evocative, lively book is the story of Lee's struggle to create her famous novel, but her colorful life contains many highlights her girlhood as a tomboy in overalls in tiny Monroeville, Alabama; the murder trial that made her beloved father's reputation and inspired her great work; her journey to Kansas as Truman Capote's ally and research assistant to help report the story of "In Cold Blood." "Mockingbird" unique, highly entertaining, filled with humor and heart is a wide-ranging, idiosyncratic portrait of a writer, her dream, and the place and people whom she made immortal."
