The Bell Jar Sylvia Plath 1963

Sylvia Plath is known as apoet who married Ted Hughes.. but her story is a much darker one than that, and this book is simi autographically account of her life… we start out with a bubbly normal person and sadly end with a very disturbed being. Sadly Sylvia committed suicide in 1963. The book describes with such detail how mentally ill people were treated in the 50/60’s and it is a nightmarish tale. The book is very well written and also surprisingly for the subject hugely readable.
