You haven't heard of The Bell Jar?!?!

I'm sure that you would love it. (Or mabye hate it.) Oh golly...

Truth be told, I haven't read it. But I think you would like it anyway.

I'm doing this anonymous to protect the formerly innocent.

No, I really haven't heard of The Bell Jar. I've heard of Sylvia Plath of course, but not read anything she wrote. Feel free to lend me something and I'll give it a try (maybe)...
PS: I know who you are :)

How do you know who I am? Are you sure that you know who I am? Or do you only think that you know who I am?
Do any of us really know who we are? :p
