To Kill a Mockingbird
is a Southern Gothic bildungsroman novel by Harper Lee. Published in 1960, To Kill a Mockingbird won the Pulitzer Prize in 1961. The novel is loosely based on the lives of various friends and members of the author's family, but with differing character names. Lee has acknowledged that the character Jean Louise "Scout" Finch, who serves as the novel's narrator, is somewhat based on herself.

To Kill a Mockingbird contains many themes such as selfishness, hatred, courage, pride, prejudice, and life's many stages, set against a backdrop of life in the Deep South. The book was successfullyadapted for film by director Robert Mulligan with a screenplay by Horton Foote in 1962. To date, it is Lee's only published novel.
