'Perhaps the most brilliant English novelist of his generation' Alan Hollinghurst
The once illustrious, once wealthy Melroses are in peril, and Patrick Melrose, now a husband and father, is trying to gather together the pieces of his life. Caught up in the turmoil of broken promises, assisted suicide, adultery and - most tender and terrifying of all - fatherhood, Patrick is still a long way from salvation, but even as the family struggles against the pull of its dark past, a new generation promises new light, new hope and - perhaps - the promise of a brighter future.
Deeply moving, hilarious and heartbreaking, Patrick Melrose: Volume 2 contains the final two novels in the Patrick Melrose series, Mother's Milk and At Last.

'The wit of Wilde, the lightness of Wodehouse, the waspishness of Waugh. A joy' Zadie Smith
