The Bell Jar
by Sylvia Plath




Overview -
What We're Reading Now:
"This novel is the tremendous story of a young writer full of potential but paralyzed by depression. After landing a coveted summer job in New York, the heroine finds herself unable to sleep, read, or interact normally with other people."
Rhiannon Antweiler, Associate

This extraordinary work--echoing Plath's own experiences as a rising writer/editor in the early 1950s--chronicles the nervous breakdown of Esther Greenwood: brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, successful, but slowly going under, and maybe for the last time.
