Gracefully Insane: The Rise and Fall of America's Premiere Mental Asylum

The history of McLean, home to such famous individuals as Sylvia Plath, Ray Charles, James Taylor, Susanna Kaysen (author of Girl, Interrupted), and Anne Sexton.

McLean also played as the muse for The Bell Jar and Girl, Interrupted.

It was an okay read but I think I'd rather read about a low class mental hospital full of dangerous experimental psychiatry and sub standard living conditions versus an upscale asylum for the rich.
