Mother's Milk (Picador 40th Anniversary Edition)

Description:
WINNER OF THE 2006 SOUTH BANK LITERATURE AWARD

The once illustrious, once wealthy Melroses are in peril. Caught in the wreckage of broken promises, child-rearing, adultery and assisted suicide, Patrick finds his wife consumed by motherhood, his mother consumed by a New Age foundation, and his five-year-old son Robert understanding far more than he ought.

Showcasing Edward St Aubyn's ability to combine the most excruciating emotional pain with the driest comedy, "Mother's Milk "is a dazzling exploration of the troubled allegiances between parents and children, husbands and wives. Acerbically witty, disarmingly tender, it goes to the core of a family trapped in the remains of its ever-present past.

'So good - so fantastically well-written, profound and humane . . . it is heart-stopping' "Observer "

'The bravura quality of St Aubyn's performance is irresistible' " Sunday Telegraph"

'Wonderful caustic wit . . . Polished yet profound, it's even better than his previous work, and that's saying something' " Guardian "

'"Mother's Milk" has the cerebral excitement and piercing funniness of St Aubyn at his brilliant best' "Tatler"
