At Last and The Patrick Melrose Novels (also by St. Aubyn) together represent the most crystalline prose and concise observation I have read in a contemporary novelist. St. Aubyn has an alchemic ability to, in a single sentence, engage humor, pathos, and shockingly bad behavior: absolutely compelling and often hair-raising.
