Overview

Some Hope: A Trilogy (Patrick Melrose Series) by Edward St. Aubyn

Some Hope marks the U.S. debut of Edward St. Aubyn, highly acclaimed in the United Kingdom as one of the most original, intelligent, and acerbically witty voices of our time. 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.

An interesting trilogy. Full of people behaving badly. Full of people who kind of care, but not really, about each other. Lots of witty, tiresome language (too reminiscent of Oscar Wilde for my taste) - certainly well-written, though, which saves it from being a total, disastrous waste of time.
