Afternoons with Harper Lee, Flynt
In a friendship that blossomed over a dozen years, Wayne Flynt and his wife Dartie became regular visitors at the assisted living facility where To Kill a Mockingbird author Nelle Harper Lee resided in her last years. The stories Lee and the Flynts exchanged ranged widely, from Alabama history and folklore to family genealogy and American literature. The afternoons spent visiting Lee yielded revelations large and small, which Flynt collected in Afternoons with Harper Lee. Part memoir and part biography, this book offers a unique window into the life and mind and preoccupations of one of America’s best-loved writers.
