Go Set a Watchman is a draft of Harper Lee's acclaimed novel To Kill A Mockingbird (1960). It was initially believed that Go Set a Watchman was a second novel - specifically a "prequel," according to many press reports - but linguistic analysis by journalists managed to prove that this was not the case.

In fact, other researchers' linguistic analyses have found that certain passages in the two books are nearly "word-for-word" identical. It still has been praised by some as an excellent piece of writing by Lee; such people have contended that, if you mind forgetting what happened in To Kill a Mockingbird or at least not expecting something similar, it could be a rewarding reading experience.
