Update on The Collected Writings of Assia Wevill

As an author and an editor, there are very few things that can be more exciting to providing an update about a forthcoming publication. One that has been in the works since the spring of 2018. When Julie Goodspeed-Chadwick asked me to work on a project, then called, The Selected Writings of Assia Wevill I knew immediately I wanted to do it. Even, as it was, on the heels of polishing off the second volume of The Letters of Sylvia Plath.

As the project developed, it was decided that the title needed to be updated to The Collected Writings of Assia Wevill

One of the biggest and happiest updates I can think of concerns the cover and as such it is with pleasure and pride that we present to you the cover image designed by the creative minds at the LSU Press, our publisher.

We still have miles to go before the book is out. But we can say that the official publication date is 10 November 2021. Pre-order the hardback here! Or the Kindle here! Thank you!!

  1. Pre-ordered, and looking forward to your newest book, Peter! In addition to the pleasures of reading the authors involved, I’ve always enjoyed the unfolding of the Plath/Hughes life stories over the years.

    I first read The Bell Jar at eighteen, and was intrigued by Letters Home and Edward Butscher’s biography as they were published, then others as they appeared through the years. I was intrigued by the woman Butscher pseudonymed “Olga,” wondering who she really was, and delighted (despite the heartbreak) in Lover of Unreason.

    Bravo, Peter and Julie!

  2. YAY! Planning on pre-ordering today! Do you know if this will be available for request on NetGalley? If so, I'd love to request a copy.
