Edward St Aubyn's Some Hope is the third in the Patrick Melrose series, filmed for Sky Atlantic, starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
Patrick Melrose, cleaned-up and world-weary, is a reluctant guest at a glittering party deep in the English countryside. Amid a crowd of flitting social dragonflies, he finds his search for redemption and capacity for forgiveness challenged by his observation of the cruelties around him. Armed with his biting wit and a newly fashioned openness, can Patrick, who has been to the furthest limits of experience and back again, find release from the savageries of his childhood?
This title was originally published, along with Never Mind and Bad News, as part of a three book omnibus, also called Some Hope.
