Beautifully balanced between harrowing and humorous, Case Study is set in London during the Swinging Sixties. It’s the story of a woman who seeks out the psychotherapist she believes is responsible for her sister’s suicide. Under an assumed name she presents herself as a client, recording her experiences in a series of notebooks. But she’s drawn into a world of uncertainties, forced to question the idea of truth itself. Combining her notebook entries with his research into the actual therapist A. Collins Braithwaite, Burnet blends fact and fiction in a powerful exploration of sanity and identity.

About the author: Graeme Macrae Burnet is the author of four novels including the Man Booker shortlisted His Bloody Project. He was named Author of the Year in the Sunday Herald Culture Awards 2017.
