Staff Reviews


“I spent 12 years in Catholic School, so this is the first time I’m reading The Bell Jar.
Everybody should read this book. I want everyone, men & women, to
read this book so they can know how women think about sex. I’ve
dog-eared about every other page so far with quotes and scenes that I
want to remember.”

— Jan

Description


A Special Paperback Edition to Commemorate the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Publication of Sylvia Plath's Remarkable Novel

Sylvia Plath's shocking, realistic, and intensely emotional novel about a woman falling into the grip of insanity

Esther Greenwood is brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under maybe for the last time. In her acclaimed and enduring masterwork, Sylvia Plath brilliantly draws the reader into Esther's breakdown with such intensity that her insanity becomes palpably real, even rational as accessible an experience as going to the movies. A deep penetration into the darkest and most harrowing corners of the human psyche, The Bell Jar is an extraordinary accomplishment and a haunting American classic.
