Description
Information
'Giving Up' is Jillian Becker's intimate account of her brief but extraordinary time with Sylvia Plath during the winter of 1963, the last months of the poet's life.

Abandoned by Ted Hughes, Sylvia and her children found companionship and care in the home of Becker and her husband. In clear-eyed recollections unclouded by the intervening decades, Becker describes the events of Sylvia's final days and suicide: her physical and emotional state, her grief over Hughes's infidelity, her mysterious meeting with an unknown companion the night before her suicide, and the harsh aftermath of her funeral.

'Ted And Sylvia', a film starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Daniel Craig, is due for release in Australia in January 2004.
