Patrick Melrose by Edward St. Aubyn

U District store
Join Nick's Picks book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!
All five short novels of the Patrick Melrose cycle are now in one volume (and a five-part Showtime mini-series with Benedict Cumberbatch).
You think a novel thats 857 pages long is going to have a serious length problem. It doesnt. The pages of this spellbinding book fly past.
You think you'll be horrified and repulsed by the subject matter: child rape and heroin addiction, infidelity and disinheritance among the super-rich. But you cant stop laughing.
Edward St Aubyns gorgeously literate style, his hilarious metaphors, his fearless writing and compulsively addicting storytelling, come together perfectly in this scathing satire of the human race when it gets its hands on too much money.
