Virginia Woolf
c "Last year Margaret Mitchell of Atlanta, Ga., wrote her first novel, Gone With The Wind. Last week Virginia Woolf of London, England published her seventh, The Years. Margaret Mitchell's book has sold more copies (1,300,000) than all Virginia Woolf's put together. But literary brokers who take a long view of the market are stocking up with Woolfs, unloading Mitchells. Their opinion is that Margaret Mitchell was a grand wildcat stock but Virginia Woolf a sound investment" (93).
