Thoughts on Harper Lee

'The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.' Atticus Finch, 'To Kill a Mockingbird'

My love for Harper Lee's 'To Kill a Mockingbird' is well-documented. I consider it to be the greatest American novel of the 20th century. I also believe the 1962 film version to be one of the century's finest pieces of American cinema. In addition, the stage version provided me with one of the most rewarding performance experiences of my life.

I really like 'To Kill a Mockingbird,' is what I'm saying.
