Graeme Macrae Burnet
Born in Kilmarnock, Scotland, Graeme Macrae Burnet studied English Literature at the University of Glasgow and International Security Studies at St Andrews university. He subsequently spent some years teaching English in the Czech Republic, France, Portugal and London, before returning to Glasgow where he worked with various independent television companies.
His debut novel, The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau – a literary mystery set in rural France featuring the troubled inspector Georges Gorski – came out in 2014 and earned him a New Writer’s Award from the Scottish Book Trust. It was followed by another Inspector Gorski novel, The Accident on the A35, in 2017.
Lauded by critics and readers alike, his 2015 novel His Bloody Project tells of a gruesome triple killing in the 1860s Scottish Highlands through an ingenious multi-viewpoint narrative. The winner of the Saltire Society Fiction Book of the Year Award in 2015, His Bloody Project was shortlisted for the 2016 Man Booker Prize and has been published in over twenty languages to high acclaim. Burnet’s fourth novel, the 1960s-set Case Study (2021), explores the nature of sanity, identity and truth itself through a story of a charismatic psychotherapist who falls under suspicion.
Beautifully balanced between harrowing and humorous, Case Study follows a woman who seeks out a captivating psychotherapist whom she believes to be responsible for her sister’s suicide.
