To Kill a Mockingbird 50th Anniversary Edition by Harper Lee

“Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”

A
lawyer’s advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of
Harper Lee’s classic novel—a black man charged with the rape of a white
girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores
with rich humor and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult
attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The
conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is
pricked by the stamina and quiet heroism of one man’s struggle for
justice—but the weight of history will only tolerate so much.

One of the best-loved classics of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird
has earned many distinctions since its original publication in 1960. It
won the Pulitzer Prize, has been translated into more than forty
languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, and was been
made into an enormously popular movie. It was also named the best novel
of the twentieth century by librarians across the country (Library Journal). HarperCollins is proud to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the book’s publication with this special hardcover edition.
