Book Three of the Patrick Melrose Novels
Author: Edward St. Aubyn
Now a 5-Part Limited Event Series on Showtime, Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Blythe Danner
Some Hope, the third installment in Edward St. Aubyn's wonderful, wry, and profound Patrick Melrose Cycle, is centered on a dinner party, attended by the illustrious and profane elite of British society. Patrick, who is now thirty and trying to recover from his addictions, considers becoming a lawyer, having spent most of his inheritance and in need of a job. Some Hope sees Patrick interacting with the contemptible but always fascinating British aristocracy again, and discovering that there might indeed be some hope for him after all.
