Harper Lee passes away

de bene esse: literally, of well-being, morally acceptable but subject to future validation or exception

Pulitzer Prize-winning celebrated author of the 1960 American classic To Kill A Mockingbird who had been confined to a nursing home for years in her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, after her sight and hearing were deeply affected by a stroke in 2007, has died.

The reclusive novelist made only a handful of appearances and has rarely spoken publicly since 1964, when she retreated from the spotlight in the wake of Mockingbird's overwhelming success.
