Bookshop offers Harper Lee Refund
05 Aug 2015 11:11
A US independent bookshop is offering refunds to customers who bought Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman.
-
The work should be seen as an “academic insight” into Harper Lee’s development as an author, rather than as a “nice summer novel” say the proprietors of Brilliant books in Michigan.
-
Brilliant Books in Traverse City, Michigan, has said that its “dozens” of customers for Go Set a Watchman are owed “refunds and apologies” over what they are argue has been misleading presentation of the recently-published novel.
-
“It is disappointing and frankly shameful to see our noble industry parade and celebrate this as ‘Harper Lee’s New Novel’,” the bookseller has posted on its website. “This is pure exploitation of both literary fans and a beloved American classic (which we hope has not been irrevocably tainted). We therefore encourage you to view Go Set a Watchman with intellectual curiosity and careful consideration; a rough beginning for a classic, but only that.”
-
Brilliant Books compares the novel to Stephen Hero, James Joyce’s original draft of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.
