Sometimes, it seems that my posts are mainly comprised of tributes to dead celebrities. Hell, my posts are mainly comprised of tributes to dead celebrities. The process I use as to whose death I note is hit-or-miss, really. There's no telling whom I'll eulogize. This explains posts about people such as Dan Hicks and Vanity, while making you wonder, no doubt, why no mention of David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Glenn Frey...
Anyway, today, I must post about author Harper Lee, who was referenced in another post of mine just over a week ago. Ms. Lee was known as the author of To Kill a Mockingbird, arguably one of the greatest novels written during the 20th century. That's not hyperbole, either. She had recently published a controversial sequel, Go Set a Watchman, published over 50 years after her other only book.
I'll leave it to others to write at length about her upbringing, later life, and legacy. My tribute posts rarely take the form of standard obituaries. I merely want to take note of the passing of such a revered figure in my own life, as To Kill a Mockingbird is and will remain one of my favorite stories.
Thanks for your time.
