“In 1967, after a session with a psychiatrist she had never seen before, 18-year old Susanna Kaysen was sent to McLean Hospital. She spent most of the next two years on the ward for teenage girls. Kaysen's memoir encompasses horror and razor-edged perception while providing vivid portraits of her fellow patients and their keepers”(from source video).
