Novel twist has us on tenterhooks...

Harper Lee was in danger of going down as a one hit wonder - until this week's spectacular news that she has written a sequel to To Kill A Mockingbird.

The announcement has sparked a groundswell of joy from fans of her original classic from 1960 which won a Pulitzer Prize but was never followed up. Now Lee (88) is bringing us back to the Finch family of Alabama in Go Set A Watchman which is told through the eyes of an adult Scout.

We won't know if the short novel (which Lee actually wrote before To Kill A Mockingbird) will live up to the hype until it's published in July - but its writer can at least be assured every lover of the original will buy it. All 40 million of us.
