Inside 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.
Inside this book –Girl, Interrupted PDF Book by Susanna Kaysen – After reading novels like One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest or The Bell Jar, one could be forgiven for feeling skeptical about the treatment for the mentally ill during the 1960’s. I’m not sure Susanna Kaysen’s memoir will change that much. In 1967, after a short interview with a psychiatrist, she was admitted, (committed may be a better word), to a mental hospital in Massachusetts, the same one that treated Sylvia Plath. Her stay lasted about 2 years. She was told she had a “character disorder”. Twenty five years later, after reading her hospital records, she learned she was diagnosed with “Borderline Personality Disorder”.
