Author: ‘I think it is an honor to have my book banned’

Susanna Kaysen Says that she’s “honored” her writing is causing such a fuss.

Orono Superintendent Kelly Clenchy pulled “Girl, Interrupted” from a freshman English class at Orono High School the day after he received a complaint about the book from a parent.
Her publicist had told her the basics, the author said, but she was surprised at the furor, since “Girl, Interrupted” has never created controversy like this in the past as far as she knew.
