About the book:

This engrossing début novel depicts Sylvia Plaths feverish artistic process in the bitter aftermath of her failed marriage to Ted Hughesthe few excruciating yet astoundingly productive weeks in which she wrote Ariel , her defining last collection of poems.

In December 1962, shortly before her suicide, Plath moved with her two children to London from the Hughess home in Devon. Focusing on the weeks after their arrival, but weaving back through the years of Plaths marriage, Kate Moses imagines the poet juggling the demands of motherhood and muse, shielding her life from her own mother, and by turns cherishing and demonizing her relationship with Ted. Richly imagined yet meticulously faithful to the actual events of Plaths life, Wintering is a remarkable portrait of the moments of bravery and exhilaration that Plath found among the isolation and terror of her depression
