One viewpoint: http://jezebel.com/be-suspicious-of-the-new-harper-lee-novel-1683488258
I have to say, I have to agree this raises some major questions. I'm embarrassed to say I did not realize that Lee was still alive prior to reading the release. It does seem weird that just three months after her attorney and sister died, this novel was "found" and Harper Lee suddenly gave the OK to publish it.
I really hope this isn't the case, but one's got to wonder.
Well the other "naughty" theory about To Kill a Mockingbird, is that her childhood friend Truman Capote was, let's say, very involved with the rewrites before it was published. That's the rumor anyway. I'll be curious to read it and see if the style is similar to TKaM.
