The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

When Ester Greenwood wins an internship on a new York fashion magazine in 1953, she is elated, believing she will finally realise her dream to become a writer.

But between the cocktail parties and piles of manuscripts, Ester finds herself spiralling into depression as she grapples with complex relationships and a society that refuses to take women's aspirations seriously.

The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath's only novel, was originally published in 1963 under the pseudonym Victoria Lucas. The novel is semi-autobiographical and has in the years since its publication sold millions of copies and become a modern classic.
