Good to see you've already taken the initiative and posted some selections! I'm very intrigued by the book about the woman Hughes left Plath for, as Plath is one of my heroes. I'm not sure I could've survived certain parts of my life without The Bell Jar, though I also love her poetry, even used one in a painting while I was in art school.

Okay, down to business...
Feel free to tell us about the books you loved, or the ones you didn't, start a discussion, post links to blogs, reviews, or articles that you think everyone needs to read--anything that fits your definition of literature goes, including song lyrics, poetry, film scripts, and plays! One caveat: this is not a self-promoting group; it is meant to champion the work of other writers, so we look forward to hearing what you think we need to read! Most important, please have fun!
I'm a bit new to the group moderator biz, so if you think I've overlooked something, let me know and I'll do my best to come through.

"It's great to read about the writing path to your memoir. I'm so glad you decided to write it yourself because your stories I've seen so far are deep, poignant and funny. No ghost writer would be able to do that for you.…"
