In this peculiar little book, the author of GIRL, INTERRUPTED explores her sexuality and sexual dysfunction graphically and in great detail. Kaysen focuses on one particularly bad relationship and the chronic physical pain she suffered throughout, her consultations with a parade of physicians, and advice from well-meaning friends. Read by the author, the unpolished performance has the feel of an intimate conversation with a close friend. Kaysen is at times even-keeled, hysterical, frustrated, and amused. And while she gets off to a slow start, the use of her own voice complements the intimacy of the subject matter. Anyone offended by strong language, however, should steer clear. H.L.S.
