Rebecca Traister on parental leave

 

Go Set a Watchmen

 

Some context here and here

 

This piece made me fall in love with Harper Lee. Something about growing old and infirm in a world you don’t quite belong to, watching the people you love disappear, being taken advantage of, growing close and cantankerous, lashing out at everyone. It was very familiar, and very moving.
