Lost for Words and The Complete Patrick Melrose Novels by Edward St. Aubyn

Collecting the five novels featuring St. Aubyn’s autobiographical protagonist into a single volume, The Complete Patrick Melrose Novels is one of the most anticipated books of 2015. Savagely exposing the insular world of British wealth and class in which St. Aubyn was raised, the writing is smart, insightful and gorgeous. In Lost for Words, St. Aubyn unleashes his acid wit on a motley group of “celebrities” chosen to judge a major literary prize (read The Booker Prize), exploring the personal motivations—ranging from the selfish to the misguided to the outright delusional—that determine the “best” novel of the year.
