Inhaltsangabe

Now a five-part limited event series on Showtime, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Blythe Danner.

Edward St. Aubyn has penned one of the most acclaimed series of the decade with the Patrick Melrose Novels. Now you can listen to all five novels in one volume: Never Mind, Bad News, Mother's Milk, Some Hope, and At Last

By turns harrowing and hilarious, this ambitious novel cycle dissects the English upper class. Edward St. Aubyn offers his listener the often darkly funny and self-loathing world of privilege as we follow Patrick Melrose's story of abuse, addiction, and recovery from the age of five into early middle age. The Patrick Melrose novels comprise a modern masterpiece by one of "the most brilliant English novelists of his generation" (Alan Hollinghurst). 

The Patrick Melrose novels as read by Alex Jennings were nominated for a 2015 Audie Award in Literary Fiction.

Kritikerstimmen

"...at its best audio offers a complementary or overlapping experience to the actual book. For example Alex Jennings’s readings of the Patrick Melrose novels by Edward St Aubyn are sublime, a sustained performance that also allows the prose to breathe in its own right. And really funny." (The Guardian, quoting author Andy Miller)

Powerful

Wonderful novels by an extraordinary writer who depicts the struggle of coming to terms with the pain of parental abuse and neglect in a brutally honest, realistic, empathic way and nonetheless manages to offer humour, comfort and even some relief!
The reading is great and convincing!
