Cambridge : a novel by Susanna Kaysen ( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It was probably because I was so often taken away from Cambridge when I was young that I loved it as much as I did . . ." So begins this novel-from-life by the best-selling author of Girl, Interrupted, an exploration of memory and nostalgia set in the 1950s among the academics and artists of Cambridge, Massachusetts. London, Florence, Athens: Susanna, the precocious narrator of Cambridge, would rather be home than in any of these places. Uprooted from the streets around Harvard Square, she feels lost and excluded in all the locations to which her father's career takes the family. She comes home with relief'but soon enough wonders if outsiderness may be her permanent condition. Written with a sharp eye for the pretensions'and charms'of the intellectual classes, Cambridge captures the mores of an era now past, the ordinary lives of extraordinary people in a singular part of America, and the delights, fears, and longings of childhood.

The camera my mother gave me by Susanna Kaysen ( Recording )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Disguised as a plain, brown memoir, [this is] a voluptuous exploration of sexuality, aging, the failures of modern medicine, attempts at self-knowledge and the meaning of pain. From the author of the acclaimed memoir Girl interrupted, The camera my mother gave me is Susanna Kaysen's exploration of what happens when sexual pleasure is replaced by pain. "When Eros goes away", she writes, "it's as if I'm colorblind. The world is gray." But is this a problem of the body, or the mind? And can clinicians tease out the difference between the two? Spare, frank and highly original, The camera my mother gave me is an extraordinary investigation into the role sex plays in perceptions and our notions of ourselves, and what happens when erotic impulse meets the world of medicine

Susanna Kaysen, who wrote about her teenage depression in the bestseller Girl, Interrupted, now takes on another taboo: her vagina'which suddenly and inexplicably starts to hurt. And neither Kaysen's cheery gynecologist, nor her internist, nor a laconic "vulvologist" has the cure. An alternative health nurse suggests direct application of tea, baking soda, and boric acid. Others recommend novocaine, oatmeal, "bio-feedback," and anti-depressants. Nothing works. As sex becomes more and more painful, Kaysen's relationship with her boyfriend disintegrates and she turns to her best friends, her wicked sense of humor, and finally wry self-reflection to get herself through. Using this unusual lens, Kaysen challenges us to think in new ways about the centrality and power of sexuality. The Camera My Mother Gave Me is an unexpected and revelatory book from one of our most candid, insightful and consistently surprising writers. From the Trade Paperback edition
