Description
Illustrated throughout with black and white photos and magazine clippings and illuminated with quotes from her peers, this is a fascinating look at a young Sylvia Plath and her life-changing month in New York as the guest editor of Mademoiselle's annual College Issue—experiences that would lay the groundwork for her novel The Bell Jar.

"Elizabeth Winder has taken Sylvia Plath's antediluvian summer in New York and given us a pixilated gem of a book. Winder has done nothing less than restore Sylvia to her time—she's given us the young, brilliant, mischievous girl, and not the ponderous symbol, martyr, or muse. In prose as delightful and lively as the champagne Sylvia liked to sip at the St. Regis ball, Winder has made Pain, Parties, Work a prose poem of the senses, and a true account of The Bell Jar before the myth hit the fan."—Sam Kashner & Nancy Schoenberger
