The 50th Anniversary edition of one of the defining novels of the 20th century.
'I was supposed to be having the time of my life.'
When Esther Greenwood wins an internship on a New York fashion magazine in 1953, she is elated, believing she will finally realise her dream to become a writer. But in between the cocktail parties and piles of manuscripts, Esther's life begins to slide out of control. She finds herself spiralling into depression and eventually a suicide attempt, as she grapples with difficult relationships and a society which refuses to take women's aspirations seriously.

I spent years avoiding this, and when I finally was bullied into reading it (for a book club), I found myself wishing I'd read it sooner. - Amy (QBD)
