There's a ad on TV that claims that the oldest trees produce the sweetest fruit. I grew up on an orchard, and I know that this is wrong. The oldest trees produce the sourest fruit. At 89, Harper Lee has proved the truth of this in her new book, Go Set a Watchman. In it, one of America's greatest fictional heroes, Atticus Finch, is portrayed as a segregationist. Worse, the story is set years after the events in To Kill a Mockingbird, suggesting that he has acquired has prejudice as he has grown older and, sadly, less wise.
In To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee says that it's a sin to kill one. Well, that's just what she's done by mistakenly publishing this text, which should certainly have remained in the safety deposit box where it was found.
