The Wind Done Gone Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Wind Done Gone

Billed by its publishers as a "parody," "The Wind Done Gone" tells the tale of Cynara, the half-sister of Scarlett O'hara of "Gone With the Wind" fame. Featuring references to characters found in Mitchell's honored classic, the book presents an alternative look at life of a mulatto as she attempts to balance life during Reconstruction. The book can spawn discussion, even if nothing more than about Randall's unusual narrative style, alternately poetic, touching, and a wee bit confusing.
