Teaser Tuesday: The Lost Journals of Sylvia Plath

He would rise at dawn, diligent scholar that he was, and write. . . .   He'd be like Hemingway or Faulkner -- one of those guys who lived hard, wrote hard, and drank themselves to death.

-- The Lost Journals of Sylvia Plath by Kimberly Knutsen, published by Northern Illinois University Press.

No, this is not really Sylvia Plath's diary. It is a funny, literary novel about a college instructor in the Midwest, working on his PhD dissertation -- a creative work called The Lost Journals of Sylvia Plath.

Meanwhile, his hippie wife is going through a post-PhD slump of her own, focusing more on seducing the college kid next door than her career or family. And things really go haywire when her pregnant, free-spirit of a sister gets to town.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
