This, her only novel, made Harper Lee an icon of American literature. Set in Alabama in the 1930s, it depicts the lifestyle and prejudices of a small rural town. The central plot follows the attempt of a small town lawyer to defend a Negro who has been falsely accused of a sex crime by the resident white trash. The whole town knows what the accuser is, yet they cannot distance themselves from their inbred prejudices. The Negro is convicted. In the end, the accuser gets his just desserts after he attacks the lawyers children. Eventually, the town residents become somewhat aware of their biases, yet does anything really change?
