Mockingbird Then and Now
Umapagan Ampikaipakan, Resident literary critic
In 1961 ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ won the Pulitzer Prize and in the next year, it was made into a film. This work about rape and racism, although about 55 years old still rings true in an America continues to battle over the Confederate flag. Our literary critics angles the discussion to underscore why this novel might resonate with us in this tropical country. Hope he also discusses the novelist’s most recent published work.
