Should Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman have been published?

After much razzmatazz, worldwide publicity and midnight openings by bookshops, this week saw the publication of Harper Lee's Go Set a Watchman.

It went on sale more than fifty years after To Kill a Mockingbird was published. While that is regarded as one of the finest novels of the twentieth century, the merits of this new novel are being questioned.
