Personal Quote:

[on 'To Kill a Mockingbird'] It is and it isn't autobiographical. The trial, and the rape case charge that brings on the trial, are made out of a composite of such cases and charges. What I did present as exactly as I could was the clime and tone, as I remembered them, of the town in which I lived. From childhood on, I did sit in the courtroom watching my father argue cases and talk to juries. See more »
