Summary
Jean Louise Finch-Scout-returns to her childhood home of Maycomb to visit her aging father, Atticus. She is disturbed by the unsettling political environment of her small southern town and struggles to reconcile the differences between the father she knew as a child and the father she sees now.
Critique
Considered the earliest known work of the famously reclusive author, Go Set a Watchman should not be read as a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird. It is a harsh portrayal of race relations in America in the 1950s.
