Bestselling author of The Rosie Project, Graeme Simsion joins forces with eminent psychiatrist Anne Buist to create a compelling account of one young doctor navigating her way through the ups and downs of a busy psychiatric ward.

Psychiatry registrar Hannah Wright has just began work at Menzies Hospital. Thinking she’s already got her head around mental health care, Hannah has a thing or two to learn about the consequences of a strained medical system. With heart and humour, the rich cast of characters bring the complex challenges of mental health to life, painting a complete picture of an under-represented world. In conversation with Sana Qadar.
