“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


"The Bell Jar" chronicles the crack-up of Esther Greenwood: brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under -- maybe for the last time. Sylvia Plath masterfully draws the reader into Esther's breakdown with such intensity that Esther's insanity becomes completely real and even rational, as probable and accessible an experience as going to the movies. Such deep penetration into the dark and harrowing corners of the psyche is an extraordinary accomplishment and has made "The Bell Jar" a haunting American classic.

This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.
