Edward St Aubyn


Celebrated English novelist Edward St Aubyn has been compared to both Evelyn Waugh and Oscar Wilde. St Aubyn is the author of seven novels.

His first novel Never Mind won the Betty Trask award. This novel, along with Bad News, Some Hope, Mother’s Milk and most recently At Last are now collectively known as the Patrick Melrose chronicles.

Both incredibly thoughtful and bitterly funny, the Melrose novels are a brilliantly scathing portrait of the English upper-class – and he writes sentences Jane Austen would admire. St Aubyn is also the author of A Clue to the Exit and On the Edge.
