Case Study
Case Study | Graeme Macrae Burnet
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 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.

I enjoyed this novel about identity, suggestion and personality. We never learn the true identity of the MC, who adopts the persona of Rebecca Smyth, in order to investigate the psychologist (based on a real person) she suspects of encouraging her sister‘s suicide.

Whilst this was good I know already it won‘t make my #booker2022 shortlist. It‘s book 7 from the 13 and it‘s 7th on my list; only because the first 6 books were so good! ⬇️

squirrelbrain I‘m rather worried as I get the feeling it may be all downhill from here on in, as far as the #booker2022 longlist is concerned! 😬 1w
rmaclean4 I may wait on this one and see if it makes the short list. 1w

An interesting psychological thriller where a young women believes that Collins Braithwaite a psychotherapist drove her sister to commit suicide. It's written as notebooks. Certainly had me gripped.
