In 2010 when the BBC did the 50th anniversary doc on Mockingbird, Lee's sister told us that Lee was still active and out and about.

Less than a year later, she is in assisted living, and going blind/suffering from memory loss.

Short of the sister fibbing, sounds like a dramatic downturn in health, which suggests a good pick for 2012.

Is it just me or does Ms Lee's reluctance to show anything and leave us to speculate remind anyone else of a certain Boo Radley?

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

I was going to make a comment about our guests ignorance, but decided against it, and when we got the announcement of the passing of Harper, I wondered if our guest would make the same mistake.
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

This made me compelled to check if there was any news on her. Unsurprisingly, there's none.

http://www.lettersof...soft-pages.html

Ok, there's that, but its from 2006.


Hmm, in 2010, the BBC did a documentary about Lee, which she refused to appear in, but her sister told us she was doing well. In late 2011, reports of her becoming increasing frail came out. Suggesting more news at the end of 2012 or in 2013... then again, her sister is 99 and still working (as a lawyer, having replaced the dad who is the avatar for Atticus Finch).

She's a hard one to keep tabs on, as apart from snippets of gossip from other people, next time we hear anything about her will probably be her death.

Report on the lawsuit to regain the royalties she lost when she inadvertently signed away the rights to her book, according to which

... vision problems, hearing loss, and, according to one friend, paralysis on her left side and a failing short-term memory. She suffered a stroke in 2007.


Probably nothing that we didn't already know; there's more on the story in the August Vanity Fair, which promises "a portrait of Lee through a handful of intimates who are willing and able to talk about her" but you'll need hard-copy to read it in full.
