Though a follow-up to To Kill a Mockingbird recently emerged from Harper Lee's archives, the writing project that consumed the author in her later years had nothing to do with Scout and Atticus. Instead, the beloved author became obsessed with the real-life case of Reverend Willie Maxwell, a rural Alabama preacher accused of murdering five of his family members and who was gunned down at the funeral of his latest victim. This absolutely captivating account of the dramatic case and Lee's attempts to immortalize it also offers fascinating insight into the inner life of the famously reticent author, racial politics of the Deep South, the blurry distinctions between fiction and nonfiction, and so much more!
