product description

The novel's perspective ricochets among all members of the Melrose family the family featured in St Aubyn's praised trilogy, Some Hope starting with Robert, who provides an exceptionally droll and compelling account of being born; to Patrick, an hilariously churlish husband who has been sexually abandoned by his wife in favour of his sons; to Mary, who's consumed by her children and an overwhelming desire not to repeat the mistakes of her own mother. An up-to-the-minute dissection of the mores of child-rearing, marriage, adultery and assisted suicide, Mother's Milk showcases Edward St Aubyn's luminous and acidic prose and his masterful ability to combine the most excruciating emotional pain with the driest comedy. Celebrating 40 years of outstanding international writing, this is one of the essential Picador novels reissued in a beautiful new series style.
