GRAEME MACRAE BURNET – AUTHOR EVENT
We are thrilled to announce that Graeme Macrae Burnet, author of His Bloody Project, will be with us at Mainstreet on Wed 27th October to discuss his long-awaited new novel, Case Study.
London, 1965. An unworldly young woman believes that a charismatic psychotherapist, Collins Braithwaite, has driven her sister to suicide. Intent on confirming her suspicions, she assumes a false identity and presents herself to him as a client, recording her experiences in a series of notebooks. But she soon finds herself drawn into a world in which she can no longer be certain of anything. Even her own character.
In Case Study, Graeme Macrae Burnet presents these notebooks interspersed with his own biographical research into Collins Braithwaite. The result is a dazzling – and often wickedly humorous – meditation on the nature of sanity, identity and truth itself, by one of the most inventive novelists writing today.
“… a page-turning blast, funny sinister and perfectly plotted… Rarely has being constantly wrong-footed been so much fun.”
