I am a new Kindle user, actually it is in transit and arriving on Tuesday. I was looking at the Kindle books and found the bell jar but it said it was not available in kindle edition in the United States....Why is this?

Her Ex-Husband, Ted Hughes, inherited the rights to her works, including The Bell Jar. He is notoriously difficult in his refusal to allow even excerpts of her work to appear in other works. I doubt he will negotiate any agreement that would include a kindle version. He acts as though she is an embarrassment. My guess is, he is jealous that she was the more successful of the two of them as a poet. Plath also made it perfectly clear that she thought him a cad for being unfaithful. He gets a bad rap, my sense is that he deserves it.

Really sad this isn't available on Kindle. I'm just very unlikely to read it if I can't get it on Kindle.
