Book Description Harper & Row, 1971. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Some wear to edges/corners of dust jacket. Small closed tear at top edge of dj near spine fold. Fold crease on back dj flap. Minor bumping at tail of spine and corners. Small smudge of soil bottom edge near corner.; Stated first U. S. edition. Hardcover book has deep maroon spine with silver lettering. Tight binding, clean text, no previous owner's marks. Not price clipped. No remainder or ex-lib marks. ; 1 x 8.3 x 5.6 Inches; 296 pages; At last Sylvia Plath's only published novel is available in her own country, eight years after it was published in England under the pseudonym Victoria Lucas. This extraordinary work chronicles the crackup of Ester Greenwood: brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, successful--but slowly going under, and maybe for the last time. Step by careful step, Sylvia Plath takes us with Ester through a painful month in New York as a contest-winning junior editor on a magazine, her increasingly strained relationships with her mother and the boy she dated in college, and eventually devastatingly, into the madness itself. The reader is drawn into her breakdown with such intensity that her insanity becomes completely real and even rational, as probable and accessible an experience as going to the movies.
