Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell is among the best-selling books ever published in English. It's the epic tale about the shrewd and selfish Scarlett O'hara and the roguish Rhett Butler, set in the American south during the Civil War. It was an instant bestseller when it was published 75 years ago this month. Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind: A Bestseller's Odyssey from Atlanta to Hollywood is the story of how a disorganised, unknown writer from the South, was able to write one of the most popular novels in literary history.
