Gone With the WindBook - 1964
Many novels have been written about the Civil War and its aftermath. None take us into the burning fields and cities of the American South as Gone With the Wind does, creating haunting scenes and thrilling portraits of characters so vivid that we remember their words and feel their fear and hunger for the rest of our lives.
In the two main characters, the white-shouldered, irresistible Scarlett and the flashy, contemptuous Rhett, Margaret Mitchell not only conveyed a timeless story of survival under the harshest of circumstances, she also created two of the most famous lovers in the English-speaking world since Romeo and Juliet.

"You have the nastiest way of making virtues sound so stupid." / "But virtues *are* stupid."
"No girl in the County, with the possible exception of the empty-headed Cathleen Calvert, really liked Scarlett"
"Frankly, I don't give a damn." (Butter never uttered "my dear" in the book, only in the movie; and the "damn" was a big no-no at the time!)
