Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen

March 19th, 2008 by Laura Moncur in Literature

Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen at Amazon.comMy reading binge continues with Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen. It was an engrossing read and I refused to put it down until I finished. I just love books that suck me in so thoroughly that I don’t want to leave their world.

On April 27, 1967, Susanna Kaysen was admitted to McLean Hospital diagnosed with Borderline Personality. The doctor who committed her had a fifteen-minute conversation with her. Within two hours of first seeing him, she had been sent to the alternate universe of the insane asylum. The same place that had housed Ray Charles and Sylvia Plath was her home for nearly two years. Girl, Interrupted is her story.

I loved this book and I was able to find one good quote:

In 2000, Girl, Interrupted was made into a movie with Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but it just moved to the top of my Netflix queue. Here is a link to some movie quotes:
