The dark but witty The Patrick Melrose Novels charts the life story of the highly dysfunctional, upper-class Patrick, together in one volume. Filmed for Sky Atlantic, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, The Patrick Melrose Novels is the complete collection of Edward St Aubyn's award-winning novels of childhood trauma and aristocratic decadence. This Picador Classics edition features an introduction by author Zadie Smith.

Patrick slid back down in his chair and sprawled in front of the view. He noticed how his tears cooled as they ran down his cheeks. Washed eyes and a tired and empty feeling. Was that what other people meant by peaceful?

Collected here together in a single volume are the complete Patrick Melrose Novels by Edward St Aubyn, Never Mind, Bad News, Some Hope, Mother's Milk, and At Last.

External Reviews

"His novels, five of which form an epic tragedy about the Melroses, a clan of low-level aristocrats in baroque decline, are feats of radical style and will. They are harrowing and hilarious, perfectly constructed and yet roomy in the way all grand epics ought to be. And still they seethe with rage at the violence they contain." - LitHub.

"Extraordinary" - Sam Mendes.

"If something has kept you from reading this great novel in five parts, let it keep you no more . . . the experience of St Aubyn is indelible." - Jonathan Franzen.

"I've loved Edward St Aubyn's Patrick Melrose novels. Read them all, now." - David Nicholls.

"At once epic and intimate, appalling and comic, the Melrose novels are masterpieces." - Maggie O'Farrell.
