Consequently, between 1966 and 1977, Plath 's British publisher, Faber, sold over 140000 copies of the novel (cited in Gill, 2008, p. 74). Critics have commented on the parallels between the events in the novel and Plath 's real life.

Forestier you might know why my husband and I are here.” Mathilde said courageously, “the diamond necklace that you lent me the night of the reception, i lost it and we never found it.” she continued, “ It took my husband and I ten years to repay the debt that the necklace caused us, our lives were horrible, we wore the same clothes, barely have any things in our apartment, and sometimes we only eat one meal a day. “ Mathilde started to cry and couldn 't continue what she was saying so her husband picked up where she left off “All we 're asking is that you give us back the necklace so that we can sell it and get our money back.” he said, “ we want the last years of our life to be grand since we wasted the last ten paying
