Sian Prior's brave memoir of her shy life

smh.com.au — Shy by Sian Prior. Sylvia Plath's depiction of a mirror as ''not cruel, only truthful; the eye of a little god, four cornered" is haunting, as is so much of her verse. The mirror's role as an all-seeing, all-knowing truth teller is a recurring theme in literature: "Mirror, mirror on the wall - who is the fairest of them all?"
