Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee

Charles J. Shields, with a fairly brief update that takes us to her death, provides a workmanlike biography of Harper Lee with a particularly interesting chapter (including this) on her trip with Truman Capote to research what later was In Cold Blood. There are no great reveals or unique special psychological insights but the basics are there in an easy to read fashion. Good details though story tapers off in the late 1960s.
