Plath was an excellent poet but is known to many for this largely autobiographical novel. The Bell Jar tells the story of a gifted young woman's mental breakdown beginning during a summer internship as a junior editor at a magazine in New York City in the early 1950s. The real Plath committed suicide in 1963 and left behind this scathingly sad, honest and perfectly-written book, which remains one of the best-told tales of a woman's descent into insanity. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
This 25th-anniversary edition of Plath's posthumous autobiographical novel includes a new foreword by the book's original editor, Frances McCullough; biographical notes; and eight previously unpublished drawings by Plath. Bravo to HarperCollins for putting all this together at a reasonable price.

I thought it would be better than it was. I was kind of bored with the book.Published 1 month ago by Penelope0108
Great book but this version is somehow riddled with typos. If that bothers you, it might be worth it to spend a little extra and get a better copy.Published 1 month ago by Hannah
Reminds me of catcher in the rye, well written and good flow, detached emotionally. Recommend this book, some typos but they are consistent...Published 2 months ago by Michele Rainville
