From Provence to New York to Gloucestershire, through the savageries of a childhood with a tyrannical father and an alcoholic mother, to a young adulthood fraught with dissolute behavior, we follow Patrick Melrose's search for redemption amid a crowd of glittering social dragonflies whose vapidity is the subject of his most stinging and memorable barbs. At once hilarious and deeply moving, Some Hope -- originally published in England as three separate novels -- is a stunningly authentic depiction of a man's journey to and from the farthest limits of the human gamut.Hide synopsis

In the tradition of Waugh and the Amises, Mr. St. Aubyn writes beautiful, bracing prose that exposes the decadence and dissipation of a slice of upper class British society. The trilogy follows young Patrick Melrose, beginning with a childhood of both extraordinary privilege and monstrous abuse through a harrowing drug binge that leaves him teetering on the edge of insanity and death. It culminates in a witty, farcical country house party after which the older and slightly wiser Patrick seems ready to find his own path.
Mordant, incisive writing. Highly recommended.
