harper lee says that the book is not autobiographical, but how is it a reflection of her?
Answer this question
Many of the characters are based on peope whe actually knew. I've read that Dill Harris is based on Truman Capote.
Atticus is lawyer and harper lee dad is also a lawyer. I read in other sources that she have four brothers but it they didn't mention there names except for edwin and i can say thats from where she based Jem.
I've also read that when Harper Lee was in college, she wrote a story about a girl who is upset when a black man is hanged. This probably was the seed for the Tom Robinson case.
