Go Set a Watchman

Postby Mad Howler » Thu Jun 02, 2016 11:53 pm

Go Set a Watchman
According to Lee's lawyer Tonja Carter, following an initial meeting to appraise Lee's assets in 2011, she re-examined Lee's safe-deposit box in 2014 and found the manuscript for Go Set a Watchman. After contacting Lee and reading the manuscript, she passed it on to Lee’s agent Andrew Nurnberg.[44][45]

Why couldn't the literal'ase leave this women alone?

I think her quiescence suggests - that's what she wanted.

"literal'ase"
- People or processors who demand literary work beyond the originator's original intent.
Yes, I made that up out of *whole cloth*.
Whatever, that little run up to Harper's end point seems offensive to me.

I understand your link well - kind of what I was subconsciously thinking.
Why should I limit the language of biochemistry to describing actions on nearby'ish molecules?
BRING ALL OF YOUR TALENTS!
How ever weird that may seem.
I don't fault you for not liking this.
