Alice Randall's The Wind Done Gone

Richard Schur delivered with an important episode for our podcast Remarkable Receptions, as he wrote about the controversy surrounding Alice Randall's novel The Wind Done Gone (2001). As Schur notes, Randall's book "challenged and reimagined the racist tropes and stereotypes within Margaret Mitchell’s 1936 novel Gone With the Wind." 

Schur offers a brief fascinating narrative about the struggle over getting the novel eventually published. His episode is a reminder that the receptions of novels often begin prior to the official releases of the books.
