Now a 5-Part Limited Event Series on Showtime, Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Blythe Danner Man Booker-shortlisted Mother's Milk, the fourth installment in Edward St. Aubyn's wonderful, wry, and profound Patrick Melrose Cycle, sees Patrick as a lawyer, married, with a five-year-old child and another on the way. The novel shifts points of view from Patrick-furious over his mother's decision to sell their mansion in the South of France to a ridiculous New Age hippie-to Patrick's wife, overburdened by motherhood, to Patrick's mother, growing senile and despondent, and even to Patrick's young son Robert, who reflects with hilarious and disturbing clarity on the moments of his birth.
