Publisher's Summary

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.

beautifully, brilliantly wrought

I may have to write a much more lengthy and insightful review to capture the ways I love, admire and appreciate this book. But since there's no time for that right now, I would say this book is for anyone who loves language and wit, the thrill, empathy and occasional horror of interior monologues from diverse and well-drawn characters, the slow unfolding of a story from many perspectives, and a frequent urge to write down what feels like profound truths imparted along the way. The performance was perfect as well - Mr Jennings used distinct voices to bring each character to life. Highly recommended!

Never mind the story Alex Jennings is breathtaking

True Story which I would have given up on after the first page ( have no experience with drugs )had Alex not been reading it. His agility with voice and accent is like listening to Les Mis with a cast of one.
