About This Item

("Margaret") in black fountain pen ink, on personal letterhead, Atlanta, May 3, 1939. 4to, 3 separate pages. To Mable and Edwin [Granberry]: " We have been in one of our hurricanes. It all started when Selznick at last announced Miss Vivien Leigh and things are just now quieting down." She then goes on to ponder an invitation to Long Beach, New York. On page two she comments on that year’s Pulitzer Prize-winner: "Of course, you know about Marjorie Rawlings getting the Pulitzer award. There never was much doubt that she would get it if there was any justice anywhere.I do not know whether the award will keep her too busy to make this trip. The members of the Atlanta Women’s Press Club have asked me to give a party for her should she come, as they are all anxious to meet her." Mitchell closes with mention of the book which made her famous: "I was interested in your remarks about finding a GWTW mention in an article written by a Chinese. I did not see the article and if you have to or know who wrote it I’d be interested. As far as I know, the book has not been done into Chinese.I am just learning now that it was published in Japan a year and half ago and that it has sold 150,000 copies there. I will not get a cent from this because Japan has a treaty with the United States which gives them the right to translate and publish American books without paying royalties to the authors." Mitchell met Edwin Granberry when he wrote an early laudatory review of GWTW; he later interviewed her for his March 13, 1937 article "The Private Life Of Margaret Mitchell." They became friends and frequent correspondents (see Darden Pyron's "Southern Daughter" for numerous comments). Not in "GWTW Letters." Mitchell (1900-49), American writer; author of the 1936 Pulitzer Prize winning "Gone With the Wind" (filmed by MGM in 1939 under directors George Cukor and Victor Fleming, starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh).. Signed by Author(s). F. Soft cover.
