Excerpt | 1932

Maycomb was a tired old town, even in 1932 when I first knew it.
Somehow, it was hotter then.
Men's stiff collars wilted by nine in the morning.
Ladies bathed before noon after their three o'clock naps.
And by nightfall were like soft teacakes with frosting from sweating and sweet talcum.
The day was twenty-four hours long, but it seemed longer.

Lee, H (1960) To Kill A Mocking Bird

Excerpt | Dill

Summer was our best season:
it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots,
or trying to sleep in the treehouse;
summer was everything good to eat;
it was a thousand colours in a parched landscape;
but most of all, summer was Dill.
