  • Brutally candid... [a] devastating but remarkable testament of self-preservation.

    Caroline Sanderson, The Bookseller, Editor's Choice
  • A powerful account of living with Huntington's disease.

    Katy Guest, Guardian
  • This is a deeply moving and profound memoir about facing the worst in life - and continuing. Everyone should read it.

    Johann Hari, author of 'Lost Connections'
  • Charlotte Raven's Patient 1 is brilliant, terrifying, heart-breaking and laceratingly honest. She has the unflinching, unsentimental clarity of Rachel Cusk and the tender humour of John Bayley - but her style is utterly unique.

    Peter Bradshaw
  • A searingly honest and important read. With neither pity nor sentimentality, Charlotte Raven captures the experience of living while losing one's mind. I cannot forget her words.

    Dr Rachel Clarke
