A beautiful, heart-breaking, inspirational tale of humanity that inspired our store's name. The power of Plath's writing left an indelible mark on the landscape of American literature.

Description


The Bell Jar is Sylvia Plath’s shocking, realistic, and intensely emotional novel of a woman falling into the grips of insanity, now available in an Olive Edition—a lower-priced small format edition with a hip and beautiful package design. A haunting American classic, 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.
