Some Hope

(1994)
(The third book in the Patrick Melrose series)
A novel by

 
 
From Provence to New York to Gloucestershire, through the savageries of a childhood with a tyrannical father and an alcoholic mother to a young adulthood fraught with drug addiction, we follow Patrick Melrose's search for redemption amidst a crowd of glittering social dragonflies whose vapidity is the subject of his most stinging and memorable barbs. A story of abuse, addiction, and recovery, the trilogy is a haunting yet hilarious depiction of a journey to and from the furthest limits of the human experience. Ultimately, "Some Hope" offers what the title suggests a powerfully satisfying conclusion and the reconciliation between the quest for forgiveness and redemption, marking St. Aubyn as a truly important literary discovery, one of the most original, intelligent and acerbically witty voices of our time.
