The Lost Journals of Sylvia Plath

€ 20.95


`Set in the frozen wasteland of Midwestern academia, The Lost Journals of Sylvia Plath introduces Wilson A. Lavender, father of three, instructor of women`s studies, and self-proclaimed genius who is beginning to think he knows nothing about women. He spends much of his time in his office not working on his dissertation, a creative piece titled `The Lost Journals of Sylvia Plath.` A sober alcoholic, he also spends much of his time not drinking, until he hooks up with his office mate, Alice Cherry, an undercover stripper who introduces him to `the buffer`--the chemical solution to his woes. Wilson`s wife, Katie, is an anxious hippie, genuine earth mother, and recent PhD with no plans other than to read People magazine, eat chocolate, and seduce her youngneighbor--a community college student who has built a bar in his garage. Intelligent and funny, Katie is haunted by a violent childhood. Her husband`s `tortured genius` both exhausts and amuses her. The Lavenders` stagnant world is roiled when Katie`s pregnant sister, January, moves in. Obsessed with her lost love, `80s rocker Stevie Flame, January is on a quest to reconnect with her glittery, big-haired past. A free spirit to the point of using other people`s toothbrushes without asking, she drives Wilson crazy. Exploring the landscape of family life, troubled relationships, dreams of the future, and nightmares of the past, Knutsen has conjured a literary gem filled with humor and sorrow, Aqua Net and Scooby-Doo, diapers and benzodiazepines--all the detritus and horror and beauty of modern life`-
