Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award in Biography • “One of the most beautiful biographies I've ever read." —Glennon Doyle, author of #1 New York Times Bestseller, Untamed The highly anticipated biography of Sylvia Plath that focuses on her remarkable literary and intellectual achievements, while restoring the woman behind the long-held myths about her life and art. With a wealth of never-before-accessed materials, Heather Clark brings to life the brilliant Sylvia Plath, who had precocious poetic ambition and was an accomplished published writer—even before she became a star at Smith College. Refusing to read Plath’s work as if her every act was a harbinger of her tragic fate, Clark considers the sociopolitical context as she thoroughly explores Plath’s world: her early relationships and determination not to become a conventional woman and wife; her troubles with an unenlightened mental health industry; her Cambridge years and thunderclap meeting with Ted Hughes; and much more. Clark’s clear-eyed portraits of Hughes, his lover Assia Wevill, and other demonized players in the arena of Plath’s suicide promote a deeper understanding of her final days. Along with illuminating readings of the poems themselves, Clark’s meticulous, compassionate research brings us closer than ever to the spirited woman and visionary artist who blazed a trail that still lights the way for women poets the world over.

Whatever it is that you need to be happy and successful--from a perfect spouse to a satisfying job, the home of your dreams, or complete self-confidence--here's an astonishingly easy and effective way to achieve your goals. Decision Power is the first guide to show you how to balance thought and feeling--the mind and the heart--to make sound decisions that also satisfy your most deep-seated desires. Its tested approaches and practical tools enable you to: evaluate every decision so that you clearly define the problem and address the real issues; develop feasible alternatives that all reflect your goals and values; make tradeoffs you can live with when you have to choose between two or more goals pulling you in different directions; overcome doubts, setbacks, or obstacles that at first appear overwhelming; trust yourself to make the right choice and gain support from family and friends for your decisions. You'll find 12 proven decision-making methods in all, that work in concert to help you access your feelings ... sharpen your problem-solving skills ... and increase your resourcefulness, inner strength, and confidence. Presented in the form of a checklist, this unique tool allows you to "test" a decision before it's implemented ... refine or revise it if you're not totally satisfied, or if new information or events change the picture. By following the step-by-step approach laid out in Decision Power, you'll never again follow a course of action that seems well-thought-out but fails to meet your underlying needs.
