    Actually, it's the first one that she wrote.

    In the 1950s, before writing To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee wrote Go Set a Watchman, set 20 years later when Scout was an adult. Lee's editor, intrigued by the flashbacks to Scout's childhood in the latter work, persuaded her to write a novel set in that period, which became Mockingbird.

    Lee didn't realize that the original novel had survived until her friend and lawyer discovered a manuscript. Now it's going to be published in July.

    I have mixed feelings about all this. It sounds like she has dementia, among other problems.
