ABOUT
THE BOOK

London, 1965. An unworldly young woman suspects charismatic psychotherapist Collins Braithwaite of involvement in her sister’s death. Determined to find out more, she becomes a client of his under a false identity. But she soon finds herself drawn into a world in which she can no longer be certain of anything. In Case Study, Graeme Macrae Burnet presents both sides: the woman’s notes and the life of Collins Braithwaite. The result is a dazzling, page-turning and wickedly humorous meditation on the nature of sanity, identity and truth itself, by one of the most inventive novelists writing today.

NOMINATING LIBRARY COMMENTS

Macrae Burnett has created a dynamic work that has excellent characterisation with acute observation.  The writing is layered but there is no use of superfluous words.

While the themes are profound, the style is both intriguing and playful .  He has created a book that is thought provoking and a compulsive read.
