LeGuin on Lee, the South, Loved Ones Whose Views You Despise

August 7th, 2015

A brilliant essay by Ursula K. LeGuin on the new Harper Lee novel, with profound character nuance regarding society and race, and the real-life complexity of living among people and family, in the South, whose views you despise (been there).

“it’s all so much more complicated than it looks like from outside, to people who don’t have to consider how love and loyalty constrain you”
