NEW YORK (AP) - A new book about “To Kill a Mockingbird” author Harper Lee will include a unique perspective: Harper Lee’s.

“The Mockingbird Next Door,” by former Chicago Tribune reporter Marja Mills, was written with the cooperation of Lee and her friends and family members. Lee has rarely talked to the media since her only novel made her famous 50 years ago.

Penguin Press announced Tuesday that it had acquired the book but has not set a release date.

According to Penguin, Mills‘ biography will cover everything from Lee’s childhood in Alabama to why she never wrote a second novel.
