    Despite her difficulties as a teenager, Kaysen went on to a life as a successful writer. Besides Girl, Interrupted, for which she earned critical acclaim, Kaysen published the novels Asa, as I Knew Him () and Far Afield (), as well as the memoir The Camera My Mother Gave Me (). A film adaptation of Girl, Interrupted appeared in 21 of the best book quotes from Girl, Interrupted #1 “The only way to stay sane is to go a little crazy.”.

The book, Girl Interrupted - (to be radically distinguished from the movie based on it) - is one of the most masterful pieces of writing of the 21st Century. The book's clear, crisp, spare prose style is so elegant and masterful that I like to.
