We all know Scarlett, but who is Dilcey and why does she share the title of Margarethe Zubler-Keller’s definitive sequel to Gone with the Wind? Scarlett and Dilcey finishes what Margaret Mitchell started and left unresolved. Oh, and a little bit about love, a nifty little murder, and touch of social climbing. 

Wouldn’t you love to read a sequel to Gone with the Wind that made sense, that felt real, and that answered the question of how Melanie died? How about one that dealt honestly with race, money, and women’s place in the world? Is it possible for Scarlett to learn—anything? Will she ever see Rhett again? Scarlett and Dilcey answers these questions and much more in a book that takes us from Georgia to Canada to Europe, Panama, and finally comes to rest in San Francisco. The geography of human emotion is as broad and varied as the physical terrain and just as interesting, if not more so.  

Margarethe Zubler-Keller read Gone with the Wind for the first time when she was 10 or 11. She read it for the last time when she was 30, before embarking on a 39 year journey toward publication of Scarlett and Dilcey, her answer to Margaret Mitchell’s lovely and seductive book. She studied English literature (mostly 19th century) at Cal-State, Fullerton and currently makes her home in the Pacific Northwest. She is a citizen of Switzerland as well as being a naturalized citizen of the U.S.
