Harper Lee EBook


Amazon.com Casey Cepâ€s Furious Hours is composed of many parts, and

any one of those parts would make a good book. Together, they make a

great book, describing the elements of a gothic true crime set in the

south, and then placing Harper Lee there to cover the trial and write

about it. When relatives of the Reverend Willie Maxwell started dying in

the 1970s, many locals suspected him of practicing voodoo. The police

thought otherwise, noting that Maxwell had taken out life insurance

policies on the deceased relatives; still, for years Maxwell managed to

evade punishment. Justice eventually caught up with the Reverend when a

relative shot him dead at his stepdaughterâ€s funeral. And thatâ€s

where Harper Lee comes in. Lee, who had assisted her friend Truman

Capote in researching In Cold Blood, wanted to observe the vigilanteâ€s

trial with the idea of writing a book about it. Furious Hours sets one

of our most beloved authors in an Alabama courtroom to watch the drama

unfold. Then Cep describes the years when Harper Lee reportedly tried to

write about the case. This is a story concerned with justice and the

truth, but it is also about art, mystery, and our darkest temptations.

—Chris Schluep, Amazon Book Review “She explains as well as it is

likely ever to be explained why Lee went silent after To Kill a

Mockingbird. (The clueâ€s in Cepâ€s title.) And itâ€s here, in her

descriptions of another writerâ€s failure to write, that her book makes

a magical little leap, and it goes from being a superbly written truecrime

story to the sort of story that even Lee would have been proud to

write.― —Michael Lewis, The New York Times Book Review'A compelling

hybrid of a novel, at once a true-crime thriller, courtroom drama, and

miniature biography of Harper Lee. If To Kill a Mockingbird was one of

your favorite books growing up, you should add Furious Hours to your

reading list today.― —Southern Living'Cep delivers edge-of-your-seat

courtroom drama while brilliantly reinventing Southern Gothic…The

result is an enthralling work of narrative nonfiction—Cepâ€s

debut—and a poignant meditation on a book that never was.'—O

Magazine'[A] well-told, ingeniously structured double mystery—one an

unsolved serial killing, the other an elusive book—rich in droll

humour and deep but lightly worn research' —The Economist“A

brilliant take on the mystery of inspiration and the even darker

mysteries of the human heart.― —People“What I didn't see coming

was the emotional response I'd have as I blazed through the last 20

pages of the book — yet there I was, weeping…A gripping, incredibly

well-written portrait of not only Harper Lee, but of mid-20th century

Alabama — and a still-unanswered set of crimes to rival the serial

killers made infamous in the same time period.― —Ilana Masad,Â

NPR“Cepâ€s book is a marvel. In elegant prose, she gives us the

fullest story yet of Leeâ€s post-Mockingbird life in New York–boozy,

unproductive, modest despite her means, yet full of books and

theater–and her quest in Alabama, where she grew close to Radney and

his family, to tell the Maxwell story. Cepâ€s is an account emotionally

attuned to the toll that great writing takes, and shows that sometimes

one perfect book is all we can ask for, even while we wish for

another.― —Lucas Wittmann, Time  'Remarkable, thoroughly

researched... the great, acrobatic trick Cep accomplishes is to deliver

a book so richly detailed and full of thoughtfully condensed research

without having access to any of its three main subjects: Willie Maxwell,

Tom Radney, and Lee... Cep has a knack for a chapter-ending cliffhanger

and building a sort of eerie tension... At her best, Cep manages the

feat that all great nonfiction aspires to: combining the clean precision

of fact with the urgency of gossip.' —Margaret Eby, The New York

Review of Books “[E]xemplary literary true crime…Gripping and

meticulous, Cepâ€s work doesnâ€t make us choose between fidelity and

style.― —Boris Kachka, Vulture  “In Cepâ€s thrilling account of

an Alabama murderer, his killer, and the lawyer who got them both off,

we get to see the To Kill a Mockingbird author hot on the trail of some

slippery characters while she struggles to write a worthy follow-up to

her iconic novel.― —O, The Oprah Magazine  “Tells a crime story

but also says a great deal about the racial, cultural and political

history of the South. As a portrayal of the life of a writer, the

section on Lee is by itself worth the price of admission.― —John

Glassie, The Washington Post'Cep narrates this saga atmospherically and

with empathy. There are lyrical passages... plus judicious detail...

Excursions into the annals of life insurance fraud and folkways of

voodoo are fascinating.―—Stephen Phillips, The Los Angeles Times Â
