Some Hope

Author:

Availability: Out Of Stock

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 drug addiction, we follow Patrick Melrose's search for redemption amidst a crowd of glittering social dragonflies whose vapidity is the subject of his most stinging and memorable barbs. A story of abuse, addiction and recovery, the trilogy is a haunting yet hilarious depiction of a journey to and from the furthest limits of the human experience. Ultimately, Some Hope offers what the title suggests - a powerfully satisfying conclusion and the reconciliation between the quest for forgiveness and redemption, marking St Aubyn as a truly important literary discovery, one of the most original, intelligent and acerbically witty voices of our time. `Our purest living prose stylist' Guardian `This is beautifully written novel . . . whose harrowing but fiercely funny portrait of addiction is the best I've ever read' Time Out `Tantalizing . . . A memorable tour de force' New York Times Book Review `St Aubyn can write dialogue as amusing as Waugh's and narrative even more deft than Graham Greene's' Edmund White `Mordant, acute, and ultimately deeply moving, this trilogy establishes him as one of the pre-eminent English writers of his generation' Will Self
