For those willing to tackle an emotionally difficult, unflinching narrative. [To coincide with publication of this book, Picador will publish the first four novels in the series in a single trade paperback original called The Patrick Melrose Novels, ISBN 9780312429966. $22.—Ed.]—Shaunna Hunter, Hampden-Sydney Coll.
