A Thank You to Harper Lee

Posted by on February 29, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

Dear Miss Lee–Thank you for teaching me that fiction can be, simultaneously, entertaining and political, and that writing about a specific place can reveal universal truths. When I read your work, I am sent back to my own early years to rediscover the wisdom of the child I was before I came of of age and began to see “through the glass, darkly.” Rest in peace, Nelle Harper. I have been your grateful student. ~Sincerely, Wally Lamb
