Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Butscher's portrait of Plath was the first full biographical study of the deceased writer and tortured soul. For this reprint, the author has updated the 1976 original. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
From the Publisher
"Butscher explodes, once and for all the romantic myth of Sylvia Plath as extremist poet who died for the sake of art . . . the very opposite seems to be true."  â€”Jonathan Yarley, Washington Post Book World
