Here is the 1945 YANK MAGAZINE interview with the author of Gone with the Wind (1936).

When this article first appeared, Margaret Mitchell (1900 - 1949; Pulitzer Prize 1937) was an American publishing phenomenon; "Gone with the Wind" (or GWTW, to those in the know) was said to be the fastest selling novel in the history of American publishing. Her one book had a sales record of 50,000 copies in one day and approximately 1,500,000 during it's first year. By May of 1941 the sales reached 3,368,000 in the English language alone; of the eighteen translations that were printed, the most popular among them was in German (having sold 500,000 copies): an unprecedented popularity.

This interview concerns her continuing popularity -the masses who insist that she write a sequel and the soldiers who write wondering if she really is like Scarlet.
