美国当代最有影响力的作家、《杀死一只知更鸟》的作者哈珀·李与世长辞,享年89岁。哈珀·李一生仅出版过两部作品,并且相隔半个世纪之久。戏剧性的是,去年出版的《设立守望者》将《杀死一只知更鸟》塑造的反对种族主义的英雄律师形象彻底颠覆了,让众多读者难以接受。正当读者猜测作者会不会继续出版第三部小说时,哈珀·李离开了...留给读者意犹未尽的想象似乎也是一种美好的结局...

Harper Lee, who wrote one of America's most enduring literary classics, "To Kill a Mockingbird," has died at the age of 89.
Her death was confirmed by the City Hall in Monroeville, Alabama, where she lived.
Lee's family said in a statement that the beloved author passed away peacefully and a private funeral will be held in the upcoming days.
Her most renowned novel "To Kill a Mockingbird," published in 1960, tells the story of a girl nicknamed Scout growing up in a Depression-era Southern town where her resolute lawyer father Atticus Finch defends a black man who has been wrongly accused of raping a white woman despite threats and the scorn of many.
The book quickly became a best-seller, won the Pulitzer Prize and was made into a memorable movie in 1962, with Oscar winner Gregory Peck stars for Atticus.
By 2015, the total sales of the book were reported to be more than 40 million worldwide, making it one of the most widely read American novels of the 20th century.
