The new Harper Lee? Tesco is selling it, rather to my surprise, and I was tempted. Not sure tho .. I've read some negative things, both about the novel itself and about the circumstances of its publication. What do people think?

We are famous for "Stockholm syndrome": "Q: Hey, what's up with Matt? His Dad is on social security, his mom got laid off, his sister's kids get free school lunches, he collects federal financial aid for college, and he only makes minimum wage working at Walmarts. Yet he keeps talking about how we need to cut taxes for the wealthy and quit spending so much on social programs. A: Yeah, he thinks he's going to be a millionaire soon. He's got Economic Stockholm Syndrome." (Urban Dictionary)
When the fuss has died down I do intend to read it.
I'm not at all surprised by the view the AF comes across as racist by today's standards. I look at the views held by even the most cutting edge white liberals of fifty years ago and, by today's standards, they're racist. We evolve with the years.
