But minds are something else. Drugs can fix brains like oil can fix an engine. The only power they had was to dope us up. Once we were on it, it was hard to get off.
A bit like heroin, except it was the staff who got addicted to our taking it. This is a gigantic debate and may, of course, be another metaphor that has taken on an undeserved life of its own.
Is there a ghost in the machine? But if a thing walks like a ghost and quacks like a ghost, then maybe. Language leads this memoir astray.
Hmmph, I should say not. Like all of us. Carried away by the onrushing ever tumbling surge of human language which is the ruin and the salvation of us all.

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 's.
I'm not sure Susanna Kaysen's memoir will change that much. In , 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".
This memoir is her recollection of the time she spent, the treatment she received, the doctors and nurses who treated her, and the other patients around her.
For those of us who are not personally familiar with these type of histories and institutions, this is an eye opening revelation and I can only hope things have improved since Anyway how do you know if the treatment of a mentally disordered person is working.
You won't take their word for it, and if they question the institution, than you can claim and actually genuinely believe that you are suffering from persecution complex.
That is the trouble - they have a bi "'Today, you seem puzzled about something. That is the trouble - they have a big word for everything which makes you think of it as a disease.
If you are too moody, you have bipolar disease; if you are too sad, you are depressed; if you are too happy, you are suffering from euphoria.
You can't do anything out of proportion or rules in this world gets declared insane. And once you are declared crazy, even things you do by the book of proportions is suspected: "They had a special language: regression, acting out, hostility, withdrawal, indulging in behavior.
This last phrase could be attached to any activity and make it sound suspicious: indulging in eating behavior, talking behavior, writing behavior.
In the outside world people ate and talked and wrote, but nothing we did was simple. Still it is one of those chances where you can see things from point of view of an inmate.
With people like author and her friends, part of problem is knowledge of their instablity. How much lonely they must feel knowing that that they are alone in the world of things they are imagining.
And some were really teenagers, discovering the not so likeable realities of the world, so one can't help wondering whether they couldn't be helped more with a good counseling and medicine rather than being locked in an asylum.
I still do not agree with her complete disapproval of professional of psychologists, I think that as a field it still seems to be finding its feet and unfortunately has started on wrong foot - also while being a psychologist may not be the hardest thing, being a good one must be terribly difficult requiring insight into human mind, a combination or compassion and disinterestedness, patience etc.
But except for that, it was beautiful all around. Parting thought : it is a memoir, read it like that and not as a novel. It is not supposed to be entertaining.
Nobody knew. Nobody dared to ask. Because—what courage! Who had the courage to burn herself? And somewhat more dangerous things, like putting a gun in your mouth.
That world defeats you. You put the gun back in the drawer. 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.
Did the hospital specialize in poets and singers or was it that poets and singers specialized in madness? View all 6 comments.

The harder question is the why; why is insanity so scary? Is it so scary because we have all, at one time or another I believe , doubted our own sanity?
I know I have. Or is it so scary because it is so impossible to define, to categorize in absolutes? When is the threshold at its thinnest?
In the inner conversations I have with myself, or other people, inside my own head that never see the light of day?
What does it really mean to be crazy?? Is it true what they say; the more you question your own sanity the less likely you are, in fact, to be insane?
She questions everything and has probably one of the most introspective voices I have ever read. Her thoughts, expressed superbly in Girl, Interrupted , are well thought out and certainly sane sounding.
Was I ever crazy? They were not perfect, but they were my friends. What is insanity?! Fore how natural is it really to exist in a world constantly defining you for you, where it is more important to seem something than truly BE it.
Perhaps we will never really know, certainly even now, far removed from the dates Kaysen found herself at home in an institution there are far more questions than answers.

Granted discussing whether or not one suffered from a mental illness can never be easy, but the book seems to be her manifesto for proving that she wasn't really borderline, as her therapist diagnosed.
I don't know enough about Borderline Personality Disorder to judge - I agree that it seems women are disproportionately di While Susanna Keysen composes some very poetic essays offering alternative and sometimes beautiful perspectives in her autobiography, her general tone is very, very defensive.
I don't know enough about Borderline Personality Disorder to judge - I agree that it seems women are disproportionately diagnosed with it, and a conservative environment could easily allow for any non-conformist woman to be blamed for her own marginalization and labeled insane.
However, while Keysen seems to want to be seen as simply non-conformist in an oppressive time, she was in some ways destructively so by her own admission.
She gave herself bruises, she attempted suicide, she tried to break into her own hand convinced it was a monkey's. The early Sixties sounded like a terrible time to be a woman, and many of the mental institutions were anything but conducive to healing.
Nevertheless, I don't buy the defensive rebel's libertarian spiel that they should just be left alone to hurt themselves, uninterrupted.
Perhaps Susanna wanted to criticize her diagnosis or how she was treated, but claiming that her acts of self-harm warranted no such "interruption" with treatment seems rather dramatic and ungrateful.
The adolescent glorification of the misunderstood, self-harming Plath-like waif is both dangerous and very selfish, and there are scores of books and songs and films to help this glorification along.
I hope girls who read this book are smart enough not to fall for it, but can still enjoy her moments of poetic greatness.

We're told not to, but I sometimes do judge a book by its cover. At least once in my life, it has paid off. I first read this book because I saw it laying under the desk of a girl in my French class in 8th grade and was immediately attracted to it- the constrast of blue against white and the separation and duality of the girl between.
It was beautiful and strange and thought-provoking and somehow irrationally felt as close to me as some crazy friend who'd been trapped in my own brain for thirteen We're told not to, but I sometimes do judge a book by its cover.
It was beautiful and strange and thought-provoking and somehow irrationally felt as close to me as some crazy friend who'd been trapped in my own brain for thirteen years.
The author at once seemed to be a part of me that hadn't yet been able to speak, and a complete stranger who frightened and compelled me.
I've returned to it time and time again and each time have found new truths and new absurdities. It so accurately and curiously expresses the truths of a mind in distress and the questioning of a woman in the making and particularly of a woman approaching adulthood in the 's, while psychology was still a relatively new field.
I lead a book club discussion of it some years ago and was startled at the stark honesty that it inspired in us as we talked, regardless of whether we actually liked the book or not.
To me, the book has nearly no relation to the movie other than the slight similarities between the premises.
Where the movie may introduce you to interesting characters and attempt to give you a linear story, it has no way to bring you into the complex and contradictory inner world of the author.
I will recommend to anyone to give it a try, because I believe what you discover in it speaks not of the book itself, but of who you as the reader are.
Jun 22, Glitterbomb rated it it was amazing Shelves: memoir-autobiography , reviews , 5-star , non-fiction. My situation was that I was in pain and nobody knew it, even I had trouble knowing it.
So I told myself, over and over, You are in pain. It was the only way I could get through to myself. I was demonstrating externally and irrefutably an inward condition.
Look, this is a book where, if you already suffer from a mental health issue, you will get it. You will draw parallels in your own life and experiences.
You will nod in agreement at the internalisation, the questions, the doubt. Absolutely nothing has changed there, from the 60's to today, and it never will.
Its the nature of the beast. Having a mental health issue is all about doubt. If, you're on the other side of this, if you have perfect mental health nobody does, but stay with me here , you probably wont understand this, and because you don't understand it, you probably wont enjoy it.
And there's nothing wrong with that. Absolutely nothing. Thanks to recent campaigns to draw awareness to mental health conditions, people these days are somewhat more receptive to the idea of others who's minds don't quite work the same way theirs do.
But, we are nowhere near where we need to be in regards to this issue. Nowhere near. This is a very brave story, published in an era when mental health wasn't talked about.
It may be somewhat outdated in respect to modern diagnosis' and treatments, but the feelings are all the same. This book is so honest, and that shines through in every single sentence.
It spoke to me, and I hope it speaks to you too. View 1 comment. Jan 13, Tara Lynn rated it did not like it Shelves: booklist-for Saw the movie, loved Angelina in it.
Now I'll tackle the book. Update: Finished the novel. I'm now convinced that the publication and fantastic reception of this novel was probably a great case of timing.
Kaysen's account of her stay in McLean Hospital is a captivating look into her mental state during her 2 year stay. However, I've got to say that if she had stayed elsewhere, or tried to publish her account now, it probably wouldn't have been received as favorably.
For the most part, many of he Saw the movie, loved Angelina in it. For the most part, many of her intermittent stories read as a desperate cry for attention, ANY attention.
We're given a VERY brief description of her original interview, as well as interesting reproductions of her case files, but her rambling thoughts throughout give no impression of how she actually responded to her therapy.
I'm sad to say that I honestly expected more. I've seen more self-actualization on some Twitter ramblings than I saw in Girl, Interrupted.
Not worth the read. Mar 27, Sa rated it really liked it Shelves: psychology-sociology. Kaysen's memoir paints a picture of a girl whose mental health is alternately proven through vivid awareness of the world around her, and disputed by accounts of self-harm and detachment.
It's interesting to note the similar war between those who have read this book. Half of them conclude that she was a confused and directionless young woman whose stint in McLean was the result of an intolerant society and a psychological field still in its kneejerk infancy.
They wonder, could that have been me? They come away shocked that such small acts of defiance by an obviously lucid person could have such a disproportionate response.
The remaining readers believe Kaysen, although honest and aware in her storytelling, was truly ill. They also wonder, could that have been me? But it is different from the first group, because they see their own doubts about their mental health, their own oddities and their own struggles reflected in the girls of McLean.
The effect this book will have on you depends on how you define sanity. Apr 24, Neelam Babul rated it it was amazing. Mental Illness is always viewed with stigma and scorn even today.
The first thought that comes to our mind when we hear the term is the word "mad. The book follows Susanna Kaysen, who is diagnosed with borderline personality disorder when she was just 17 years old.
Once hospitalized, she befriends her inmates and together we get a glimpse of their lives and struggles. Definitely, a book that everyone needs to read at least o Mental Illness is always viewed with stigma and scorn even today.
Definitely, a book that everyone needs to read at least once in their lifetime. Jun 16, Britany rated it liked it Shelves: books-to-film , , memoir , non-fiction.
I never realized it was a book, and not only that but a true account from Susanna Kaysen. The book is short, and cuts right to the point.
The chapters are set up like thoughts or short concepts that Susanna wants to share. The movie does a great job of sticking close to the book and I was impressed with how closely they matched.
Susanna finds herself sent to Belmon 3. Susanna finds herself sent to Belmont after an appointment with her Doctor.
She certainly struggles with boredom and while her needs and desires were different from the average Cambridge resident, certainly not enough to commit her to an asylum.
I'm glad that I picked this one up and if you are interested in the subject matter, I would urge you to do the same. Jan 06, Elizabeth rated it liked it Shelves: memoir-bio , mental-health.
While the movie is absolutely a Hollywood adaption with much added storyline, drama, and a weird glamorization of "broken girls", it's still one that I've always really liked and watched many times.
I hoped the memoir would provide a much more realistic idea of what Susanna Kaysen's time at McLean Hospital actually looked like, as well as details that weren't included in the film.
Unfortunately, it reads like the barest bones of the script, meaning there's nothing here that wasn't in the movie. A While the movie is absolutely a Hollywood adaption with much added storyline, drama, and a weird glamorization of "broken girls", it's still one that I've always really liked and watched many times.
And also what's here is vague and scattered, written often with an uninterested tone. I suppose this is more a collection of vignettes; snapshots and random memories of Susanna's time at the hospital.
I appreciate the style of writing, but it's not my favourite. I will say that last chapter is amazing. I absolutely loved the story of the Vermeer painting, and how Susanna saw two different versions at two different points in her life.
Ultimately I wish I could have had the opportunity to read this before the movie, and I think if you do you should take it.
Dec 13, Shelly Strange rated it liked it Shelves: 3-stars. I read this book around the time the movie came out.
I remember liking it, but not loving it. I'm curious to maybe do a re-read one day. I kind of felt like it was one of those books that got a lot of hype and didn't live up to it.
I liked the movie. If I ever do a re-read, I'll add to this. I don't remember much, to be honest, except that it didn't blow me away.
I bought the book and I ended up over the years donating it to a thrift store. So, I must not have liked it that much. View all 7 comments.
Jul 29, Naomi rated it it was ok Shelves: non-fiction , mental-health. This book was a memoir of Susanna Kaysen's time in a mental institution and it was written in homodiegetic narration.
When I first started this book I thought it would be an excellent insight into the damaged mind of a young eighteen year-old girl and I was looking forward to the intriguing thoughts of a mentally ill person.
However, I found that the book mostly focused on the author's time in the mental institution and I did not get a sense of how the illness affected herself.
Kaysen mainly desc This book was a memoir of Susanna Kaysen's time in a mental institution and it was written in homodiegetic narration.
Kaysen mainly described the other people she lived with and not so much about her own progress or life.
Furthermore, the chapters seemed to jump around a lot so there was no sense of chronology or order; perhaps this was meant to reflect how Kaysen's mind was chaotic and unstable but I found this quite annoying, making the book difficult to enjoy.
The writing style was simplistic and uninteresting making this novel an easy read. I also found that I did not connect or feel empathetic with the author despite the personal depiction of her story, which disheartened me somewhat as I hoped that I would feel deeply moved by her tale; realistically I felt bored and disconnected.
One aspect I did like was the insertion of real documents from the doctor's notes which were intriguing and informative. Moreover, it gave me a greater understanding of the process of a mental institution, and I felt some pathos for the characters because their conditions were piteous.
In addition, Kaysen wrote how people treated them as unhuman which moved me slightly as mental illness is not something to scorn or mock but a very serious disorder.
The isolated situation of these people made me more aware of the prejudice surrounding mental illness and the way people instantly judge one who has dealt with a mental disorder; they tend to avoid them and feel scared or uneasy.
Overall, I did not enjoy this book very much, although at times it was quite informative and it was also interesting to see how living in a mental institution was like in the s.

There are so many changes encountered while growing up and becoming an adult that it is very difficult to adjust to the changes and make the transition to being a successful, independent person.

She denies that it was a suicide attempt to a psychiatrist, who suggests she take time to regroup in McLean, a private mental hospital.
Susanna is diagnosed with borderline personality disorder , and her stay extends to 18 months  rather than the proposed couple of weeks. Fellow patients Polly, Cynthia, Lisa Rowe, Lisa Cody, Georgina and Daisy contribute to Susanna's experiences at McLean as she describes their personal issues and how they come to cope with the time they must spend in the hospital.
Susanna also introduces the reader to particular staff members, including Valerie, Dr. Wick and Mrs. Susanna and the other girls are eventually informed that the recently released Daisy died by suicide on her birthday.
Daisy's death deeply saddens the girls and they hold a prolonged moment of silence in her memory. Susanna reflects on the nature of her illness, including difficulty making sense of visual patterns, and suggests that sanity is a falsehood constructed to help the "healthy" feel "normal" in comparison.
She also questions how doctors treat mental illness , and whether they are treating the brain or the mind.
During her stay in the ward, Susanna also undergoes a period of depersonalization , where she bites open the flesh on her hand after she becomes terrified that she has "lost her bones.
This hectic moment is described with shorter, choppy sentences that show Kaysen's state of mind and thought processes as she went through them.
Also, during a trip to the dentist with Valerie, Susanna becomes frantic after she wakes from the general anesthesia , when no one will tell her how long she was unconscious, and she fears that she has lost time.
Like the incident with her bones, Kaysen here also rapidly spirals into a panicky and obsessive state that is only ultimately calmed with medication.
After leaving McLean, Susanna mentions that she kept in touch with Georgina and eventually saw Lisa, now a single mother who was about to board the subway with her toddler son and seemed, although quirky, to be sane.
Girl, Interrupted does not follow a linear storyline , but instead the author provides personal stories through a series of short descriptions of events and personal reflections on why she was placed in the hospital.
She begins by talking about the concept of a parallel universe and how easy it is to slip into one, comparing insanity to an alternate world.
She discusses how some people fall into insanity gradually and others just snap. Kaysen also details the doctor's visit before first going to the hospital and the taxi ride there at the beginning of the book before launching into the chronicles of her time at the hospital.
There are two main groups of characters, the patients and the staff.
