Acclaim for Susanna Kaysen’s.

Acclaim for Susanna Kaysen’s. Written bare-bones prose, funny, readable and true. The great success of Girl, Interrupted is that it avoids the romantic inflation that most other sufferers of psychosis fall into when they describe their experience.

The memoir's title is a reference to the Vermeer painting Girl Interrupted at Her Music. While writing the novel Far Afield, Kaysen began to recall her almost two years at McLean Hospital. She obtained her file from the hospital with the help of a lawyer.

It isn't something you do the first time you think of doing it. It takes getting used to. And you need the means, the opportunity, the motive. A successful suicide demands good organization and a cool head, both of which are usually incompatible with the suicidal state of mind. 'Crazy isn't being broken or swallowing a dark secret. It's you or me amplified. Susanna Kaysen, Girl, Interrupted.

GIRL, INTERRUPTED: "Eighteen-year-old, Susanna Kaysen was sent to a psychiatric hospital after one session with a psychiatrist. What followed was a two year stint at McLean Hospital, the same institution that housed Sylvia Plath, Ray Charles, and James Taylor. In Kaysen's memoir she discusses her own diagnosis and treatment of other female patients in 1967 America. The story brings in to question what we define as "sane" and how women are often written off as "insane" without reason. Posted by author's publisher).

Girl, Interrupted written by Susanna Kaysen is about the authors life as a young, ambitious girl in the 1960's who gets admitted into the women's ward of a psychiatric hospital in Massachusetts. Observantly, Kaysen tells the story of her two-year-long stay at the hospital through multiple vague vignettes. She describes another patient named Lisa, who is a proud sociopath, and how her unpredictable personality was a prime source of entertainment for the other women in the ward. Another one of her 'friends' at the hospital is her room mate, who also suffers from depression, named Georgina. Georgina is an ultimately relaxed character and, on the surface, seems pretty normal, but her instability emerges later in the story. For most of the book, Kaysen refuses to accept the fact that she is in the ward because the psychiatrist that admitted her only saw her for 20 minutes and diagnosed her with Borderline Personality Disorder. In one vignette, she recollects her suicide attempt, in which she took 50 baby aspirin and passed out at a grocery store, saying, "… it was only part of myself I wanted to kill: the part that wanted to kill herself, that dragged me into the suicide debate …" (37). This showcases her unhappiness with only parts of herself and her underlying instability, which seems to be a very important theme throughout the novel. One important event is when Kaysen is released into the world and is forced to participate in life. She struggles with finding a job because of her past and reluctantly accepts an old friend's marriage proposal.
Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it very insightful. It showcased the struggles of womanhood in the late 1960's, her endless turmoil with her mental state, and her attempts to define the line between sanity and insanity. Throughout the book, her and the other women in the ward frequently watch television and are very engaged in the many civil rights movements going on in that time period. Even after Kaysen leaves the hospital, she struggles with finding a job because of her intolerance with the unfair roles of women in the workplace. Having left the hospital and created a life for herself, she decides to research the disease the doctors claimed she had. She understands some of the parts of the diagnosis; cutting herself and impulsive activities, but she comes to the realization that it is a generalization, which further brings up the problem with the blurry line between sanity and insanity. Her efforts to determine sanity are very relevant, even in modern society, because mental illness is a very real thing and the course of treatment is crucial to a person's development. I would definitely recommend this book to others because of its dark humor and reflective plot.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I appreciate that it contains an epilogue, so to speak, with Susanna explaining what happened after her hospital stay. I have seen the movie a few times, and it portrayed Susanna as being completely recovered, but also never having been that sick, in the first place. The movie is great, but the book is wonderful. It far encompasses the film. Try it. You'll probably be pleasantly surprised.

I have fought with crippling depression and anxiety over the past few years. It has gotten better, however I still have my occasional dark day here and there. When I first read this book (after the movie came out) I was frustrated and annoyed by the huge differences between the two. Reading it again in my late thirties, so much rang true to me this time...particularly in regards to self harm. Yet again I am reminded as to how recovery is a constant process. Thank you for sharing your story.

Unlike the dramatic (and wonderful) narrative movie of the same title, Susanna Kaysen's book is a collection of little vignettes sprinkled with her intelligent self-examination and philosophical musings. It can be read in small chunks, each of which is thought-provoking. I particularly appreciated her characterizations of the therapists, who weren't any saner than Ms. Kaysen (and that's perfectly realistic given that a significant percentage of people enter the study of psychiatry/psychology for a better understanding of their own maladjustments.) I wish this book was about twice as long, because I read it in a single short sitting and found myself wanting more. Oh, and as to the diagnosis of "borderline personality - recovered," I shared that diagnosis and don't understand it any better than Ms. Kaysen and perhaps her therapists do. I think it represents the intelligent, sensitive person who questions the world around her and finds it wanting.

I did enjoy the humor in this work. However, do not expect any progressive timeline for the stories within this book. The short chapters jump back and forth with no signs of organization. While within the same chapter this technique helps to describe the frantic activity of racing thoughts known to those with mental illnesses, it makes the book itself much harder to read and follow along. It is refreshing to learn that the book isn't exactly like the movie for those who saw the movie first. For younger readers, be prepared to look up cultural references as well. I couldn't understand the significance of some without further research. With that in mind, it's still a good read.
