Pada awal April 2015 ini Mizan Pustaka telah secara resmi memperoleh hak penerbitan edisi Indonesia atas novel Go Set A Watchman dan To Kill a Mockingbird karya Harper Lee.

Go Set A Watchmen adalah lanjutan dari To Kill A Mockingbird, novel legendaris yang pertama kali terbit di Amerika pada 1960 dan terus diapresiasi dan dibaca dalam berbagai bahasa dunia hingga saat ini. Menurut Harper Lee, “Pada pertengahan 1950-an, saya menyelesaikan novel berjudul Go Set a Watchman, yang mengisahkan Scout sebagai wanita dewasa.

Tetapi editorku yang terkesan dengan kisah masa kecil Scout di novel itu memintaku menulis novel dari sudut pandang Scout kecil. Karena waktu itu aku masih penulis pemula, maka aku menuruti sarannya. Aku tak menyadari bahwa naskah Go Set A Watchman masih ada. Jadi aku sangat terkejut sekaligus senang saat sahabat dan pengacaraku Tonja Carter menemukannya.

Setelah berpikir panjang, aku menunjukkan naskah itu kepada beberapa orang. Ternyata menurut mereka Go Set A Wacthman layak terbit. Aku merasa takjub sekaligus tak percaya bahwa naskah pertamaku akan diterbitkan setelah bertahun-tahun.

Go Set a Watchman bersetting pertengahan tahun 1950-an, dua puluh tahun setelah kisah To Kill A Mockingbird dan menampilkan banyak karakter dari To Kill A Mockingbird. Scout (Jean Louise Finch) kembali ke Maycomb dari New York untuk menjenguk ayahnya Atticus Finch.

Di Maycom, Scout mencoba memahami masalah-masalah pribadi dan politik saat dia berusaha memahami sikap ayahnya dan perasaannya sendiri tentang kota kelahirannya. Setelah Kill a Mockingbird diterbitkan oleh J. B. Lippincott tahun 1960, Harper Lee menyimpan naskah Go Set a Watchman dan melupakannya.

Naskah asli novel itu dianggap hilang hingga musim gugur 2014 saat Tonya Carter menemukannya di sebuah tempat. Naskah Go Set A Watchman rupanya disimpan bersama naskah asli Kill a Mockingbird.

Mizan pertama kali menerbitkan edisi Indonesia dari novel To Kill A Mockingbird pada 2006. Novel tersebut mendapatkan sambutan luas dan sudah diterbitkan ulang sebanyak dua kali hingga tahun 2010. Karena itu Mizan merasa bangga dan terhormat dipilih menjadi penerbit Indonesia untuk menerbitkan kembali To Kill a Mockingbird dan novel lanjutannya Go Set A Watchman.

Press Release On early April 2015 Mizan Pustaka has officially been chosen as the publisher who would release the Indonesian editions of Go Set A Watchman and To Kill a Mockingbird karya Harper Lee.

Go Set A Watchmen is a sequel of To Kill A Mockingbird, the legendary novel that was first published in the United States on 1960 and continued to be printed and appreciated in many languages until the present.

Harper Lee says, “In the mid-1950s, I completed a novel called Go Set a Watchman. It features the character known as Scout as an adult woman and I thought it a pretty decent effort. My editor, who was taken by the flashbacks to Scout’s childhood, persuaded me to write a novel from the point of view of the young Scout.

I was a first-time writer, so I did as I was told. I hadn’t realized it had survived, so was surprised and delighted when my dear friend and lawyer Tonja Carter discovered it. After much thought and hesitation I shared it with a handful of people I trust and was pleased to hear that they considered it worthy of publication.

I am humbled and amazed that this will now be published after all these years.” Go Set a Watchmanis set during the mid-1950s and features many of the characters fromTo Kill a Mockingbirdsome twenty years later. Scout (Jean Louise Finch) has returned to Maycomb from New York to visit her father, Atticus.

She is forced to grapple with issues both personal and political as she tries to understand her father’s attitude toward society, and her own feelings about the place where she was born and spent her childhood.

AfterTo Kill a Mockingbirdwas published by J. B. Lippincott in 1960, Harper Lee set aside Go Set a Watchman and never returned to it. The original manuscript of the novel was considered to have been lost until fall 2014, when Tonja Carter discovered it in a secure location where it had been affixed to an original typescript ofTo Kill a Mockingbird.

Mizan first published the Indonesian edition of To Kill A Mockingbird on 2006. The novel was widely accepted and has been republished twice up to 2010. That’s why Mizan was proud and honored to be the Indonesian publisher who will publish To Kill a Mockingbird and its sequel Go Set A Watchman.
