"The book [Girl, Interrupted] soon became a New York Times bestseller, and, when it was adapted for the big screen in 1999, an Oscar-winning film. Girl, Interrupted’s publication coincided with the height of the ‘90s disaffected youth culture — Nirvana’s "Smells Like Teen Spirit" had already made grunge mainstream; My So-Called Life was in production — and audiences were primed to see themselves in Kaysen’s portrait of misanthropy."
A fantastic read in Bustle as Susanna Kaysen reflects on the legacy of Girl, Interrupted, 30 years after it was first published.

"The piercing eyes stare out intently from the cover of 'American Prometheus,' a biography of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the scientist who spearheaded the development of the atomic bomb. The book, by Kai Bird and Martin Sherwin, was the inspiration for Christopher Nolan’s much-anticipated 'Oppenheimer,' opening July 21. And as Nolan was working on the script, only one actor came to mind: Cillian Murphy."
The “Oppenheimer” star is carrying a major movie for the first time, a responsibility he takes very seriously. Christopher Nolan wrote it with him in mind.
“When in a lighthearted manner I set out, 15 years ago, to write the first ‘Lord Peter’ book,” she wrote, “it was with the avowed intention of producing something ‘less like a conventional detective story and more like a novel.’”
