Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind: A Bestseller's Odyssey from Atlanta to Hollywood presents the first comprehensive overview of how this iconic novel became an international phenomenon that has managed to sustain the public's interest for 75 years. Various Mitchell biographies and several compilations of her letters tell part of the story, but, until now, no single source has revealed the full saga. This entertaining account of a literary and pop culture phenomenon tells how Mitchell's book was developed, marketed, distributed, and otherwise groomed for success in the 1930s and the savvy measures taken since then by the author, her publisher, and her estate to ensure its longevity.

I read this book last summer. I got to learn a little bit about the author of Gone with the Wind (the book) and her family. Very interesting read. Without the book, I will never get to hear about her because everyone who knew her are probably not around anymore.

I am still reading Gone with the Wind (the book). The English is hard to read because of old language.
