Scarlett and Me
by Anne Edwards

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED AFTER RHETT LEFT? A BEHIND THE SCENES ACCOUNT OF THE SEQUEL THAT ALMOST WAS

Scarlett and MeScarlett and Me is the personal and dramatic story of how author Anne Edwards' life and work became enmeshed with that of Scarlett O'Hara, Margaret Mitchell, and a sequel to Gone With the Wind. It reveals for the first time the back story of how it came to be and includes details of what that sequel might have been had it not been caught up in a long, complex, legal battle among the Mitchell estate, the studios (MGM and Universal), and the producers (Zanuck/Brown) who had contracted Edwards to write it.

"Anne Edwards has now written a fascinating autobiographical account of her decades-long involvement with all that is Gone With the Wind: Vivien Leigh, Margaret Mitchell, and Edwards' ill-fated experience writing the continuation of Gone With the Wind. Scarlett and Me is as compelling as Gone With the Wind itself, revealing so much about the intricacies of the publishing and film industries." - Chris Sullivan
