New Book Coming Soon

  1. We love books. 
  2. We love books about Gone with the Wind.   

Taking into account 1 and 2, you shouldn't be surprised that we're happy to hear there's a new one on the way. Especially since this one is a book that aims to cover an area only partially charted by the studies published so far: Gone with the Wind's road to fame. How did one novel become so successful worldwide and why does it continue to keep our attention today?

Part of the answer can be found in its publishing history and that's exactly what the upcoming Margaret Mitchell’s Gone the Wind: A Bestseller’s Odyssey from Atlanta to Hollywood will focus on. We think it's a topic worth exploring. If you agree, you can pre-order the book through all major booksellers, including Amazon. The book is to be released in February next year.

If you're on Twitter you can follow one of the authors here: (and even if you're not on Twitter, do visit from time to time for various interesting GWTW links). And if you want to read more about her other Gone with the Wind project, here's nice blog entry for you.


  1. Fantastic! I collect books about GWTW (not to mention old hardback editions of the book itself). Let's only hope this isn't another fiasco like Molly "The Hack" Haskell's.

  2. I, of course, have no way of knowing, but I think it has fair chances to be better. Especially if you think that this is a project based on actual research, while Haskell's book was based on... based on... I got nothing. Let's say it was based on her opinions and leave it at that. Even if I had already heard criticism of it (from you and from others), I was still surprised at how little added value that book actually had.
