Much has been written about Sylvia Plath, the iconic American poet whose untimely death in 1963 has haunted and intrigued admirers of her work. This audiobook relies on newly released information, as well as exclusive access to previously unavailable papers belonging to Plath's therapist. All this is well and good, but Rollyson's text lacks the energy and cohesion to make this more than a series of facts. Arthur Morey, an outstanding performer with a wide range of audiobook narration on his resumé, is not well suited to this material. Indeed, to say that his immense skill is underutilized in this is an understatement. His usually affable delivery, perfectly paced and well animated, has little impact on the text, making his performance flat and difficult to follow.
