Yahoo! National News - Sun, 03/15/2015 - 04:28
(Reuters) - The literary agent for Harper Lee said he was surprised someone had told Alabama authorities that the 88-year-old author might be the victim of elder abuse and manipulated into the publication of her second novel. In a statement issued Friday through publisher HarperCollins, agent Andrew Nurnberg said Lee was delighted about the publication of "Go Set a Watchman" scheduled for July, 55 years after her classic "To Kill a Mockingbird." "I was surprised to hear that someone had, anonymously, approached the authorities in Alabama to suggest that Harper Lee was being subjected to 'elder abuse,'" the statement read.   "Having spent quality time with her over the last couple of years, I can categorically state that she is in full possession of her mental faculties," Nurnberg said. On Thursday, the Alabama Securities Commission said it had closed its investigation into an unspecified complaint of elder abuse, first reported by The New York Times, tied to the publication of Lee's second novel.
