To Kill a Mockingbird
No, not the movie. The book. It just became available in the Kindle store and, if you've read it, you know just how fabulous it is and, if you haven't read it, you have a marvelous treat coming. I shall not ruin it for you by telling you whether or not the trial comes out the same way as in the movie, nor whether the endings are the same, nor whether Gregory Peck was cast in the role because he really looked like Atticus Finch, nor whether you can picture Atticus Finch in any way other than as Gregory Peck. Suffice it to say that Harper Lee's writing is a good as it gets and her incisive slicing of the human character is even better.
