30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY THE AUTHOR
'Girl, Interrupted is a beautiful, complex story that truly led the way on opening up a new, brave, nuanced approach to talking about women's mental health. It is an intense and personal story that taps into a universal truth about how the world responds to complicated young women' SCARLETT CURTIS
'Poignant, honest and triumphantly funny . . . A compelling and heartbreaking story' NEW YORK TIMES
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.
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 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.
The bestselling memoir that inspired the cult classic film, starring Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie.
