    Margaret Mitchell was born in Atlanta, Georgia, in November 1900. After a broken ankle immobilised her in 1926, Mitchell started writing a novel that would become Gone With the Wind. Published in 1936, it made Mitchell an instant celebrity and earned her the Pulitzer Prize. The film version, also lauded far and wide, came out just three years later. More than 30 million copies of Mitchell's Civil War novel have been sold worldwide, and it has been translated into 27 languages. Sadly Mitchell was struck by a car and died in 1949, leaving Gone With the Wind as her only novel.
