Books That Changed My Life

“Sylvia Plath’s Ariel: I was almost a woman (no longer a girl) when I found this book and I was thrilled to find a female poet who wrote terror into beauty, who was unabashedly self-deprecating, who didn’t shrink from anger, and who challenged the ways women were supposed to speak about so-called feminine themes. And, of course, who didn’t mind cussing out her father every once in a while.”

Fun Fact

“I grew up in a retirement home for most of my adolescence.”
