Scout's back

It is with the greatest pleasure that I direct you here this afternoon. The Guardian has put an extract from Go Set A Watchman on it's website, Harper Lee's sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird. I intend, of course, to buy the novel as soon as I can; yet listening to this extract, beautifully read by Reece Witherspoon, I am reacquainted with a voice I first heard almost twenty years ago. To hear the voice of Scout Finch again, now grown up yet still full of the rich Southern wisdom I fell in love with in Mockingbird, makes me happy beyond words. It takes me both to Alabama, where the story is set, and to the path between the special school I attended and the comprehensive where I did my GCSE english - where Mr Dale, one of the best teachers I ever had, first introduced me to a novel I fell in love with and to the voice it's so good to hear once more.
