A vulnerable young girl wins a dream assignment on a big-time New York fashion magazine and finds herself plunged into a nightmare. An autobiographical account of Sylvia Plath's own mental breakdown and suicide attempt, The Bell Jar is a comic, but painful confessional novel of a 1960's society that used electroshock and institutions to cure her descent into madness.
I love reading books again and again. It's like coming back to old friends. And you will always notice something new or make a new connection that you hadn't thought of before. Even if the world in that book is always the same, the reader is not, thus the story will always grow.
