Review:

A writer with whom the poet spent her last weekend perceptively details her final days.
Thoughtful and intelligent: a welcome corrective to the legend. -- Kirkus Reviews, March 15, 2003

Becker doesn't portray herself as the heroine, or Plath as pure victim...a fascinating book. -- Drexel University: The Drexel Online Journal,

In a bare 44 pages, Jillian Becker fits in more good sense and compassion on the subject of Sylvia Plath than books ten times as long. -- Independent on Sunday, 19 May 2002, Books pages

The bitterness and rancour surrounding the suicide of Sylvia Plath is revealed in a new book ... defying years of "censorship" by [the Hughes] family. -- Independent on Sunday, 19 May 2002, main paper

[A] book utterly devoid of sentiment, a clear-eyed view of the suicide...plain-spoken and frank in its judgments. -- RockyMountainNews.com, November 15, 2003

From the Publisher:

GIVING UP: THE LAST DAYS OF SYLVIA PLATH was made the subject of a "scoop" in the INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY, 19 May 2002 because it revealed for the first time what Ted Hughes said to Jillian Becker at Sylvia Plath's funeral - a story that the Hughes family would not allow to appear in BITTER FAME, the biography of Plath by Anne Stevenson. See the quotation from the Independent on Sunday's review.
