9780062085498 Pain, Parties, Work by Elizabeth Winder is a compelling look at a young Sylvia Plath and the life-changing month that would lay the groundwork for her seminal novel, The Bell Jar. In May of 1953, a twenty-one-year-old Plath arrived in New York City, the guest editor of Mademoiselleâ€™s annual College Issue. She lived at the Barbizon Hotel, attended the ballet, went to a Yankee game, and danced at the West Side Tennis Club. She was supposed to be having the time of her life. But what would follow was, in Plathâ€™s words, twenty-six days of pain, parties, and work, that ultimately changed the course of her life. Thoughtful and illuminating,Â featuring line drawings and black-and-white photographs,Â Pain, Parties, Work: Sylvia Plath in New York, Summer 1953 offers well-researched insights as it introduces us to Sylvia Plathâ€”before she became one of the greatest and most influential poets of the twentieth century.
