In May of 1953, a twenty-one-year-old Plath arrived in New York City, the guest editor of Mademoiselle's annual College Issue. She lived at the Barbizon Hotel, attended the ballet, went to a Yankees 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 Plath's words, twenty-six days of pain, parties, and work which, ultimately, changed the course of her life.

Written in a somewhat juvenile style--after I read for the 3rd time that "Sylvia adored...." I was annoyed. Some facts are unsupported by footnotes or even notes. Still, there are fine concrete details about a poet-heroine whom I suspected I wouldn't have liked in real life.
