Description - The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
'This terse account of an American girl's breakdown and treatment gains its considerable power from an objectivity that is extraordinary considering the nature of the material. Sylvia Plath's attention had the quality of ruthlessness and.imagery and rhetoric is disciplined by an unwinking intelligence.' Stephen Wall in the Observer
