Reviews

  • "This is beyond a doubt one of the most remarkable first novels produced by an American writer. It is also one of the best. I would go so far as to say that it is, in narrative power . . . surpassed by nothing in American fiction."

    The New York Times
  • "For sheer readability I can think of nothing it must give way before"

    The New Yorker
  • "Gone With The Wind is a rich, complicated book . . . we can and should argue about a story that’s achieved such a hold on the American imagination"

    The Washington Post
  • "Mitchell carefully analyses the nature of human resilience, and holds up hopefulness as the critical tool for getting through the worst times… most of all, in the[se] bleak days . . . it is Scarlett’s belief that tomorrow will be better that feels endlessly and gleefully hopeful. After all, as she knows so well: “Tomorrow is another day.”"
