McSweeneys hat Harper Lees Alternativ-Vorschläge zu ihrem Mockingbird-Sequel aufgetrieben:
Just wanted to let you know I’m still brainstorming. I’m just going to say the title and see what you think:
TO BE KILLED BY MOCKINGBIRDS. People like horror. The Exorcist was huge. So it’s years after the first book. Jem has moved away. Atticus has died, and without his presence and expert marksmanship to worry about, the people of Maycomb finally let out their pent up aggression on the now grown-up Scout with threats and vandalism and all sorts of cruel acts. Finally, she can take it no longer and uses her MAGICAL ABILITIES to summon forth great clouds of mockingbirds to attack and kill the racist people of Maycomb!
See, there’s, I don’t know, a witch or something in Maycomb who gave her special powers as a thank you to Atticus for defending her in a witch hunt. Yeah, that’ll work.
