An Uncut Gem: Harper Lee's Novel, Go Set A Watchman

Reconciling the characters in Go Set A Watchman with the characters of To Kill A Mockingbird was a conscious effort that consistently pulled me out of the story. I found the dissonance between what I understood the characters to be based on the first novel, and the characters that were presented in the second novel to be a major source of discomfort because they don't truly align. There are echoes and shadows of the familiar characters within the characters in Go Set A Watchman, but at times they feel like wholly separate people.

Yesterday, some sad news was passed to me, via e-mail, by a friend. Westown Cinema is closing. Our dear friend, The Ultrascreen, a full one hundred feet of cinematic goodness will be no more. The litany of movies I've seen there is long and distinguished, ranging from The Matrix Trilogy, to The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, to Star Wars: Episodes I-III, and most recently The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe.
