Booklovinglady @Jyotsna
Although less pages than mentioned here, my edition of The Bell Jar (#6) is longer than 200 pages. And the one mentioned here even has 266 pages, according to GR. Your own description clearly says "Novellas are short novels under 200 pages" but you've voted for The Bell Jar anyway.... :-)

Jyotsna Sreenivasan Well, it depends on which edition you have . . .

I agree, totally. No offense, but as you are the first, and presently only, voter for this book, why didn't you put a 200 or less pages edition on the list? (All I could find for 200 pages or less are either e-books or translations, by the way).

Agree. Bell Jar is much longer than a novella. Edith Warton wrote many more Novellas than the one listed. This truly isn't a great list.
