Go Set A Watchman should never have been published. Also, there is no Santa Claus. Sorry kids.

Because I'm a writer, people sometimes expect me to live in NYC or LA. But I'm kind of addicted to mountains.

According to Mr. Pinkus (agent), there was no discussion of publishing “Watchman” in 2011, because Ms. Lee and her sister, Alice, had long maintained that Ms. Lee had no interest in publishing another book. #GoSetAWatchman  
On the eve of the Harper Lee novel’s publication, her lawyer has put forth a new version of how the book surfaced, raising new questions around an already murky tale.

On my thirtieth birthday, my wife left me. She took her cookware, furniture, photos, her decorations. She left me alone in an empty all-white apartment.

Tagline
Decent writer. Failed poet. Stridently self-deprecating.
Introduction
Jamie Ford is the great grandson of Nevada mining pioneer Min Chung, who emigrated from Kaiping, China, to San Francisco in 1865, where he adopted the western name "Ford," thus confusing countless generations.

His debut novel, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet was a New York Times bestseller and went on to win the 2010 Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature.

His new novel SONGS OF WILLOW FROST was published in 2013

Bragging rights
His work has been translated into 34 languages. Jamie is still holding out for Klingon (that’s when you know you’ve made it).
