The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

Sylvia Path's semi-autobiographical exploration of a young woman's battle with crippling depression was published in January 1963. Initial reviews were “warily positive,” but were soon overshadowed by news of Plath’s death in February of that year. It is a novel that is at once disturbing and darkly funny.

    Really don't want to miss this meeting but, ....an important work conflict has come up.
    Here's the question. I'll change my RSVP to open up another space, but wonder.......how would it be if I come when I can later?....no later than?? Last time we ended at around 9:930 I think? But mostly I don't want this to be disruptive, just to maybe see the essence of what went on in earlier discussion. Big girl here so really okay if this isn't okay?......jm
    PS. I can give a phone # if someone would want to let me know if things start wrapping up and to stay away. )
