I never feel so much myself as when I’m in a hot bath.
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
Reading this line in The Bell Jar has made me think about the whole bathing experience. Today you can have a hot tub in your back garden, place something that looks as if it’s a cream cake in the water and watch it explode, or buy a Victorian bath with chrome plated feet.
I am now on a quest to find a story where a bath is integral to the plot.
