2019: The SundayGuardianLive quoted from Malcolm Gladwell’s book 'Talking to Strangers': "In the fall of 1962, the American poet Sylvia Plath left her cottage ... for London. ... She found an apartment in London’s Primrose Hill neighbourhood—the top two floors of a townhouse. “I am writing from London, so happy I can hardly speak,” she told her mother. “And guess what, it is W.B. Yeats’ house. With a blue plaque over the door saying he lived there!” And it was here that she killed herself in February 1963.
