About This Book
In 1967, after a session with a psychiatrist she'd never seen before,
eighteen-year-old Susanna Kaysen was put in a taxi and sent to McLean Hospital.
She spent most of the next two years on the ward for teenage girls in a
psychiatric hospital as renowned for its famous clientele--Sylvia Plath, Robert
Lowell, James Taylor, and Ray Charles--as for its progressive methods of
treating those who could afford its sanctuary.
Kaysen's memoir encompasses horror and razor-edged perception while providing vivid portraits of her fellow patients and their keepers. It is a brilliant evocation of a "parallel universe" set within the kaleidoscopically shifting landscape of the late sixties. Girl, Interrupted is a clear-sighted, unflinching documnet that gives lasting and specific dimension to our definitions of sane and insane, mental illness and recovery.
