Family & other animals

by Anthony Byrt

Edward St Aubyn’s acclaimed Some Hope trilogy told the story of the Melroses – a dysfunctional and abusive family of fallen aristocrats. One of them – the drug-taking Patrick Melrose – is back after a decade with a “vivid and disruptive” mid-life crisis.

Mother's Milk - Booker Longlist 2006, #1

‘“What else is there to do but read too much into things?” said Patrick breezily. “What a poor, thin, dull world we’d live in if we didn’t. Besides, is it possible? There’s always more meaning than we can lay our hands on.”’

My advice: Best steer clear of current political comment Edward, it doesn’t suit you.

Edward St Aubyn’s Mother’s Milk

All children, except one, grow up. Or do they? A century after J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan first made his appearance amongst us, English author Edward St. Aubyn is asking the question - do we ever really grow up? And more, do we need to?

Notes: 

[1] I have to admit that this is the first St. Aubyn book I’ve ever read. I’m told that the Melrose family have featured elsewhere in his work as well. I intend to find out for myself shortly.

[2] You see why I like him so much.
