But Is It A Sin to Kill Her Agent?
In November, we posted a link to a story about To Kill a Mockingbird’s Harper Lee suing her hometown museum.
But it turns out the aging author has an even bigger fish to fry in the courtroom: her literary agent who “duped” her into signing over the copyright to her Pulitzer Prize–winning novel. As the LA Times reported in July:
That’s no small thing: A half century after its publication, “To Kill a Mockingbird” still sells more than 750,000 copies a year. In one typical six-month period in 2009, its royalties amounted to more than $1.6 million.
