50th Anniversary Edition of Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar Published Today

Faber's 50th anniversary edition of The Bell Jar is officially published today (though it was made available in December 2012). I typically encourage people to purchase directly from the publisher, however, if you are not (do not reside) in the United Kingdom, then you may not be able to order directly from the publisher. I tried to order it for delivery in the USA and was told they were unable to ship to my country because they do not have the rights to sell it here. Amazon.co.uk, however, can. Good luck.

On 1 January, Sam Jordison at The Guardian selected Plath's The Bell Jar as the January Reading Group selection. Read the fine article and its comments here.

Not wild about the cover. I really love the image on the first Heinemann edition and, of subsequent editions, prefer the retro image that graces the Faber Firsts 2009 edition.
