"How often does a novel earn its author both the Presidential Medal of Freedom, awarded to Harper Lee by George W. Bush in 2007, and a spot on a list of "100 best gay and lesbian novels"? Clearly, To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning tale of race relations and coming of age in Depression-era Alabama, means many different things to many different people ... Holly Blackford invites the reader to view Lee's beloved novel in parallel with works by other iconic American writers--from Emerson, Whitman, Stowe, and Twain to James, Wharton, McCullers, Capote, and others. In the process, she locates the book amid contesting literary traditions while simultaneously exploring the rich ambiguities that define its characters."--Publisher site.
