I have long been an admirer of Auburn University historian Wayne Flynt’s work, and with his incisive biography of Nelle Harper Lee, "Afternoons with Harper Lee," he outdid himself. 

His prose is described by Patti Henry as flowing “gracefully as the rivers of Alabama, clear and lyrical” and is called “the great Talmudic scholar of Alabama” by Diane McWhorter.  I could not agree more with the assessments of these noted writers.
