Nelle Harper Lee, the author of the iconic To Kill A Mocking Bird which became a national institution and the defining text on the racial troubles of the American deep south, has died at the age of 89.

She had been living in a nursing home less than a mile from the house in which she had grown up in Monroeville, Alabama for several years now.

Harper Lee was born in 1926 in Monroeville, Alabama. She won the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 for To Kill A Mockingbird and remained a one-book literary wonder until last year when her second book,  a prequel to Mocking Bird, Go Set A Watchman was published.

Her first book sold more than 40 million copies around the world. She avoided public attention throughout her life.
