Publisher's Summary

The fourth Patrick Melrose novel.
The once-illustrious, once-wealthy Melroses are in peril. Caught up in the wreckage of broken promises, child-rearing, adultery, and assisted suicide, Patrick finds his wife Mary consumed by motherhood, his mother in thrall to a New Age foundation, and his young son Robert understanding far more than he should. But even as the family struggles against the pull of its ever-present past, a new generation brings a new tenderness, and the possibility of change.

Profoundly psychoanalytic, but that is woven into entirely plausible, dreadful characters, convey a historical moment and class too. The whole Melrose series excellent, this one crowns them for virtuosity of writing and narrative arc. Fantastically well read here.
