In 2004, Chicago Tribune reporter Marja Mills moved next door to Harper Lee, the renowned and beloved author of To Kill a Mockingbird. The Mockingbird Next Door details the next eighteen months of life with Harper Lee—sharing coffee at McDonalds, trips to the Laundromat, feeding the ducks, going out for catfish supper, and exploring all over lower Alabama with Lee’s inner circle of friends. Fans of Harper Lee will not want to miss this intimate look at the author’s life, as Mills shares a rare portrait of Harper Lee, of how To Kill a Mockingbird affected her life, and why she chose to never write another novel.
