Cover for new Harper Lee novel revealed

HarperCollins has been very tight-lipped about the July 14 release of Harper Lee's recently rediscovered and much ballyhooed novel, "Go Set a Watchman." Media requests for basic information on the release go unanswered. But today the cover was released with this statement:

"There are so many wonderful parts of GO SET A WATCHMAN that it was hard to pick just one iconic image to represent the book.  This design is perfect- it draws on the style of the decade the book was written, but with a modern twist.  GO SET A WATCHMAN begins with Scout's train ride home, but more profoundly, it is about the journey Harper Lee's beloved characters have taken in the subsequent 20 years of their lives." -- Michael Morrison, President and Publisher U.S. General Books and Canada
