A compelling, addictive novel for readers of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine told with heart, humour and insight.

Psychiatry registrar Doctor Hannah Wright, a country girl with a chaotic history, thought she had seen it all in the emergency room. But that was nothing compared to the psychiatric ward at Menzies Hospital.

Hannah must learn on the job in a strained medical system, as she and her fellow trainees deal with the common and the bizarre, the hilarious and the tragic, the treatable and the confronting. Every day brings new patients: Chloe, who has a life-threatening eating disorder; Sian, suffering postpartum psychosis and fighting to keep her baby; and Xavier, the MP whose suicide attempt has an explosive story behind it. All the while, Hannah is trying to figure out herself.

With intelligence, frankness and humour, eminent psychiatrist Anne Buist tells it like it is, while co-writer Graeme Simsion brings the light touch that made The Rosie Project an international bestseller and a respected contribution to the autism conversation. Their latest novel is your favourite medical drama with a psych twist, illuminated by Anne’s 35 years experience as a psychiatrist and Graeme’s deft handling of weighty topics.

Graeme’s Rosie Project series has sold over six million copies in forty languages and won ABIA book of the year; Anne’s five crime novels have been published in Australia and overseas. Their first joint effort, Two Steps Forwarda story of walking and renewal, was an international bestseller, sold to fourteen countries with movie rights optioned in the US.

Join them at the Afterword Cafe as they talk about their books, writing as a couple and their mission to visit every bookshop in Australia. And (almost) anything you want to ask them.
