Description


Dans une petite ville d'Alabama, a l'epoque de la Grande Depression, Atticus Finch eleve seul ses deux enfants, Jem et Scout. Avocat integre et rigoureux, il est commis d'office pour defendre un Noir accuse d'avoir viole une Blanche. Ce bref resume peut expliquer pourquoi ce livre, publie en 1960 - au coeur de la lutte pour les droits civiques des Noirs aux Etats-Unis -, connut un tel succes.
Mais comment ce roman est-il devenu un livre culte dans le monde entier ? C'est que, tout en situant son sujet en Alabama dans les annees 1930, Harper Lee a ecrit un roman universel sur l'enfance. Racontee par Scout avec beaucoup de drolerie, cette histoire tient du conte, de la court story americaine et du roman initiatique. Couronne par le prix Pulitzer en 1961, Ne tirez pas sur l'oiseau moqueur s'est vendu a plus de 30 millions d'exemplaires dans le monde entier.

From the publisher:

"In this richly imaginative debut novel, the first running of the Kentucky Derby serves as the backdrop for a story of what might have been had Abraham Lincoln survived his assassination and lived to retire with Mary to Springfield.  Derby historian Ross R. Moore provides an accurate account of the origins of the famous race, while creating a detailed and entirely plausible world through which the Lincoln's journey to Louisville to meet old friends and to face another deadly threat.  Part horse racing saga, part travelogue, part historical fantasy, part suspense thriller, chock full of sly bits of "stealth history" befitting its educator author, and peopled with memorable characters both real and imaginary, the result is an entertaining and engaging yarn and rewarding read."

Ross R. Moore is an educator, storyteller, and singer-songwriter living in San Diego.  A native of Kentucky where he attended Murray State University and the University of Louisville, he was for several years a museum educator at the Kentucky Derby Museum, sharing the history of the race with visitors. Now he brings this story to a wider audience, drawing upon his knowledge of Derby lore to form the backdrop of this, his first novel.
