mollitudo asked: Work overtook me! A brief description: Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea is smart and hard and heartbreaking. It's about madness, female madness specifically, and how society (particularly with regards to race, class, and gender) conspires to destroy a mind. It's also a postcolonial prequel to Jane Eyre. Anyway, I haven't read The Bell Jar so I wasn't sure how appropriate a suggestion this might be, I made a guess based of their shared imperative feminism and concerns with madness and sanity.
Totes approps. Thanks.
