Emotionally charged with an exceptional poetic gift, Sylvia Plath was a woman shadowed by a dark and very private pain that could only be released through death. Her suicide would harrow and haunt three people: her husband, the poet Ted Hughes, freed by her demise and then imprisoned by her myth; Assia Gutmann Wevill, Plath's rival and Hughes's mistress, who kills herself only six years after Plath; and Robert Anderson, a young New York writer who reveals that Plath's poems and her suicide "forged my identity and, incidentally, ruined my life. " Their lives intersect, transiently and directly, through some of the more dramatic social upheavals of the past decades. Crackling with wit and verbal dexterity, Little Fugue is a stunning novel of artists caught between the erotic allure of extinction and the eternal power of poetry.
