The "Melrosian" - or five short novels centered on the life of Patrick Melrose - is a powerful and ambitious novel cycle based loosely on the author's own life.  Elegantly written and powerfully controlled, it is serious, and sometimes heartbreaking, yet also laugh out loud funny in its pithy observations of the lives of privilege and wealth.  The sort of read that remains with you once the book is done.
