The Bell Jar is Sylvia Plath’s shocking, realistic, and intensely emotional novel of a woman falling into the grips of insanity, now available in an Olive Edition—a lower-priced small format edition with a hip and beautiful package design. A haunting American classic, The Bell Jar chronicles the crack-up of Esther Greenwood: brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under—maybe for the last time.
