Title: The Bell Jar
Author: Sylvia Plath
Blurb: Working in New York one hot summer, Esther Greenwood is on the brink of her future. Yet she is also on the edge of a darkness that makes her world increasingly unreal. In this vivid and unforgettable novel about the struggles of growing up, Esther’s world shines through: the wide-eyed country girls, her crazed men-friends, hot dinner dances and nights in New York, and a slow slide into breakdown.
Why I want to read it
Believe it or not but I actually dreamt about this book. So, I went to the public library and borrowed it. I just never got time to read it and I had to give it back. I’m still very intrigued both because of the hard subject of this book and because of the author’s own wonderful but tragic life. I really want to be mentally prepared to tackle this beauty.
