People in their right minds never take pride in their talents.

Harper Lee

Nelle Harper Lee (born April 28, 1926) is an American novelist widely known for her novel To Kill a Mockingbird, published in 1960. It was immediately successful, winning the Pulitzer Prize, and has become a classic of modern American literature. In February 2015, aged 88, and after a lifetime of maintaining that she would never publish another novel, Lee's lawyer released a statement confirming the publication of a second novel, Go Set a Watchman. Written in the mid 1950s, and serving as the first draft of To Kill a Mockingbird, it was released in July 2015.
