Patrick Melrose Volume 1
Never Mind, Bad News and Some Hope
'Remarkable - ferociously funny, painfully acute and exhilaratingly written' Sunday Times
Moving from Provence to New York to Gloucestershire, from the savageries of a childhood with a cruel father and an alcoholic mother to an adulthood fraught with addiction, Patrick Melrose is on a mission to escape himself.
But the drugs don't make him forget his past, and the glittering parties offer him no redemption . . . Searingly funny and deeply humane, Patrick Melrose: Volume 1 contains the first three novels in the Patrick Melrose series, Never Mind, Bad News and Some Hope.
'Humour, pathos, razor-sharp judgement, pain, joy and everything in between. The Melrose novels are a masterwork for the twenty-first century' Alice Sebold
''The Patrick Melrose novels are masterpieces, each and every one' Maggie O'Farrell
