Bad News Press Reviews

Praise for the Patrick Melrose novels:

 

'The Melrose novels are remarkable ferociously funny, painfully acute and exhilaratingly written. A brilliantly controlled story of a life sent out of control'
Peter Kemp, Sunday Times

 

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

 

'A beautifully written novel, whose harrowing but fiercely funny portrait of addiction is the best I've ever read' Time Out

 

'St Aubyn conveys the chaos of emotion, the confusion of heightened sensation, and the daunting contradictions of intellectual endeavour with a force and subtlety that have an exhilarating, almost therapeutic effect' Francis Wyndham, New York Review of Books

 

'Our purest living prose stylist' Guardian
