To Kill a Mockingbird

I do not think I will go as far as to call it an Urban Legend, but it has been a rumor for the past 40 years. The rumor is, that Harper Lee did not actually write To Kill A Mockingbird that instead it was her best friend since childhood Truman Capote. People chose to believe this since Harper Lee only wrote one novel. She claimed back in the 1970s that she was in the middle of her second novel, but no second novel was ever completed. This rumor began circling around again with the release of CAPOTE, where Harper Lee was portrayed as instrumental in Truman Capote's In Cold Blood. USA TODAY published an article about whether or not this rumor has any validity. The link is:
