All the magic and truth that might seem deceptive or exaggerated in a factural account of a small town unfold beautifully in To Kill a Mockingbird.... Harper Lee...is clearly working hard to create a pointed story for the reader. Here is a story teller justifying the novel as a form that transcends time and place.... Miss Lee's characters are people to cherish in this winning first novel by a fresh writer with something significant to say, South and North.
