A brilliant, autobiographical journey through the darker corners of the British aristocracy—childhood rape, alcoholism, drug addiction, recovery, and what comes next—THE PATRICK MELROSE NOVELS by Edward St. Aubyn are available in one volume with an introduction by Zadie Smith, who favorably compares their author to Oscar Wilde, P.G. Wodehouse. and Evelyn Waugh.
(There’s also a recent mini-series with Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role.)
