I’ve been waiting more than two months for this book to come out. It was released on Sylvia Plath’s birthday (Oct. 27th). I picked it up yesterday and it is amazing so far, but it’s long at 937 pages. Instead of the focus being on her suicide it is on the amazing art of the written form she composed during her lifetime.
The author spent eight years researching, given access to previously unseen journals, letters, stories and poetry. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to see through the mythology of Sylvia Plath and see the real woman and artist.
Here’s the NYT review:
