8. K&R, because I know Harper (Nelle) Lee and her family.
Edited on Sun Jul-25-10 12:31 AM by DemoTex
You have hit the nail on the head. And I know.

On edit to clarify: Harper (Nelle) Lee wrote "To Kill a Mockingbird." I dated Harper's niece in the 1960s. Her niece's dad was Jem in the book. Harper was "Scout." "Dill" was Truman Capote. Truman helped Nelle with "To Kill A Mockingbird" in the same way Nelle helped Truman with "In Cold Blood." Advisory, library, and moral support. I met Capote through Harper Lee.
