DescriptionIn 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 to be treated for depression. She spent most of the next two years on the ward for teenage girls in a psychiatric hospital renowned for its famous clientele - Sylvia Plath, Robert Lowell, James Taylor and Ray Charles. A clear-sighted, unflinching work that provokes questions about our definitions of sane and insane, Kaysen's extraordinary memoir encompasses horror and razor-edged perception while providing vivid portraits of her fellow patients and their keepers.

Reviews for Girl, Interrupted
a book that i won't recommend. except with the true hospital records of the author's depressive disorder, there's nothing else to impress me. and even with the records, they're printed in very small letters which it's difficult if not impossible to read. by mickey ip
