Book of The Week: The Bell Jar

/, Staff Picks, Teen/Book of The Week: The Bell Jar

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

 

Esther lives in New York. She works as a writer and socialises with the most elite circles a woman can hope to. Her life seems like something she ought to be proud of and content with, until you walk a mile in her shoes. Everywhere Esther turns she is met with disheartening misogyny, character-defining choices, and a sense of not belonging. The Bell Jar is candid and provocative as a unique outpouring of a character’s innermost thoughts, and is hailed as a coming-of-age triumph.
