A newcomer needs to know two things about Atlanta in order to survive. Every street is named Peachtree, and every woman might as well be named Scarlett. It's an exaggeration, of course. But in a place where reality often feels exaggerated--the heat, the history, the hospitality--hyperbole serves a purpose. Just as there are two kinds of tea offered everywhere you go here, so there are two kinds of truth--sweetened and unsweetened.

At least that character looked beyond stereotypes and social roles in her dealings with the other characters in the book. After 24 years and several readings, the only trait I see to admire in Scarlett O'Hara is tenacity.
