Mother's Milk

While traveling home from Oregon on Friday I completed the fourth Patrick Melrose novel, Mother's Milk, which was by far my favourite yet.  This one is set about a decade after the last one, when Patrick is married and has two young children, the oldest of which, Robert, is the opening narrator of the novel.  The book is set during successive August vacations in the South of France and grapples with issues of motherhood and our relationships with our mothers.

I am now in the midst of the fifth and final novel, At Last.
