In the media

Why did it take me so long to fall in love with the brilliant novels of Edward St Aubyn
Brett Easton Ellis
Humour, pathos, razor-sharp judgement, pain, joy and everything in between. The Melrose novels are a masterwork for the twenty-first century, by one of our greatest prose stylists
Alice Sebold
St Aubyn conveys the chaos of emotion, the confusion of heightened sensation, and the daunting contradictions of intellectual endeavour with a force and subtlety that have an exhilarating, almost therapeutic effect
Francis Wyndham
