Each season, Hoopla chooses a Spotlight Selection and produces materials like discussion guides, read-a-like suggestions, book cub meeting planners, and exclusive author interviews to help you get the most out of your reading experience.
The Summer 2022 Spotlight Selection, The Last Confessions of Sylvia P. by Lee Kravetz, is available to stream or download as an ebook or audiobook with no waitlists or holds. Everyone can start reading or listening right away.
A seductive literary mystery and mutigenerational story inspired by true events, The Last Confessions of Sylvia P. imaginatively brings into focus the period of promise and tragedy that marked the writing of Sylvia Plath’s modern classic The Bell Jar. Lee Kravetz uses a prismatic narrative formed from three distinct fictional perspectives to bring Plath to life-that of her psychiatrist, a malicious rival poet, and years later, a curator of antiquities.
