From Normal to Insanity

by Howdy (WorldCat user published 2010-10-30) Very Good Permalink

The Bell Jar is a true Modern Classic.  The main character appears at first to be a NORMAL "Over Achiever" and then she just slides into INSANITY.  It leaves the reader to ponder the thought, "This could happen to anyone.  Could it happen to me?".
