Narrator Dan Woren leads listeners through the convoluted creation of Harper Lee's classic, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. He uses his authoritative voice to deliver the biography of Lee's father and comment on how she used many of his traits to bring Atticus Finch to life. It's both a fascinating exploration of the creative process and a picture of the Jim Crow days of the Deep South, when lynchings were commonplace. Woren's slow and steady pace effectively delivers Crespino's study of the first draft of Lee's manuscript, published recently as GO SET A WATCHMAN, and why in many ways the first version of the story is more truthful and illuminating than the beloved classic.
