Never Mind Synopsis

Never Mind by Edward St. Aubyn

Never Mind Press Reviews

Praise for the Patrick Melrose novels:

 

'Perhaps the most brilliant English novelist of his generation' Alan Hollinghurst

 

'The Melrose sequence is now clearly one of the major achievements of contemporary British fiction. Stingingly well-written and exhilaratingly funny'
David Sexton, Evening Standard

 

'St Aubyn puts an entire family under a microscope, laying bare all its painful, unavoidable complexities. At once epic and intimate, appalling and comic, the novels are masterpieces, each and every one' Maggie O'Farrell

 

'Nothing about the plots can prepare you for the rich, acerbic comedy of St Aubyn's world or more surprising its philosophical density' Zadie Smith, Harpers

 

'St Aubyn's prose has an easy charm that masks a ferocious, searching intellect. One of the finest writers of his generation' The Times
