The captivating stories behind fifty of the greatest authors and their most famous literary creations


Before Who the Hell is Pansy O?Hara ?, there had never been a single volume that explored the backstories of so many of the greatest books in the English language. A work sure to captivate all lovers of language and literature, it reveals in short, pithy chapters, the lives, loves, motivations, and quirky, fascinating details involving fifty of the best-loved books of the Western world.

? When stacked up, the original manuscript of Gone With the Wind stood taller than Margaret Mitchell, its 4' 9 1/2'' author

? Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond, was part of the Allied team that cracked the Nazi?s Enigma code

? Leo Tolstoy?s wife copied War and Peace by hand . . . seven times
