Harper Lee's Attorney Recalls Finding 'Watchman Manuscript

Harper Lee's attorney has provided her fullest accounting yet of how she came upon the manuscript for "Go Set a Watchman." In an essay posted late Sunday on the Wall Street Journal's web site, Tonja Carter wrote that last summer she was at a gathering of Lee's friends and family members when "talk turned" to a possible second novel by the author of "To Kill a Mockingbird." She then searched in a safe deposit box that contained some of Lee's papers and found "Watchman" underneath "a significant number of pages of another typed text." Go Set a Watchman," written before "Mockingbird but set 20 years later, comes out Tuesday.
