Offering a deeply moving portrait of Harper Lee, one of the country’s most beloved writers, Furious Hours also tells the story of Reverend Willie Maxwell, a rural preacher accused of murdering five of his family members to collect the insurance money. Lee attempted to capture the shocking murders, courtroom drama, and racial politics of the Deep South yet ultimately abandoned the project. Casey Cep brings these two stories to life.
