We have another wonderful event scheduled with one of our favourite writers, Graeme Macrae Burnet. Graeme has visited Topping & Company Booksellers twice before, for Man Booker Shortlisted His Bloody Project and The Accident on the A35.

“I have decided to write down everything that happens, because I feel, I suppose, I may be putting myself in danger.” 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 a dazzling – and often wickedly humorous – meditation on the nature of sanity, identity and truth itself.

It should be a fascinating evening by one of our most inventive novelists writing today.
