When I read that Flanagan finds The Bell Jar's writing overpraised, her little remaining credibility quickly dissolved. She's obviously very full of herself and feels the need to apply her own indulgent and overly-protective experience to everyone else's. Her idea of "Girl Land" is so narrowly defined and praised--this realm is hardly universal.

I wouldn't recommend this book unless you really like rolling your eyes and wincing audibly at unfounded, ridiculous claims.
