Harper Lee

I just finished reading a preview copy of The Mockingbird Next Door by Marja Mills.  It details the friendship that developed between Mills and Harper Lee and her sister, Alice.  I loved it!  It paints an intimate portrait of an author who delights in being elusive, reclusive, whatever.  That said, there are articles on the web stating that the author may not have had full cooperation from the Lee sisters.  Does that matter?  If someone writes a novel that becomes a bestseller and modern classic, is that author entitled to the same anonymity of the average citizen?  Hmmmmm.
