The Patrick Melrose Novels

The Patrick Melrose Novels


The Patrick Melrose Novels hilariously dissect the English upper class, conjuring a world of decadence, amorality, greed, snobbery, and cruelty, but never without the possibility of grace. Taken together, they are one of the most thrilling reading experiences in contemporary fiction.


  • I read the five Patrick Melrose novels in five days. When I finished, I read them again
