A Book We Do Not Need
Just as remakes of great movies are completely unnecessary, so are sequels to great novels. I couldn't believe this headline today: 'To Kill A Mockingbird' author Harper Lee to publish second novel. The new novel Go Set a Watchman, Harper Lee's first for 55 years, features Scout as an adult woman and, in the author's words, is 'a pretty decent effort'. No thanks -- I'll pass.
