The Melrose family is in peril. Through shifting perspectives, Edward St. Aubyn's elegant and scathingly witty novel examines the troubled allegiances between parents and children, husbands and wives. From young Robert, who provides an exceptionally droll and compelling account of being born, to Patrick, a hilariously churlish husband who has been sexually abandoned by his wife in favour of motherhood, to Mary, who is consumed both by her children and by an overwhelming desire not to repeat the mistakes of her own mother, St. Aubyn uncovers the web of false promises that entangle this once-illustrious family whose last vestige of wealth - an old house in the south of France - is about to be permanently donated by Patrick's mother to a New Age foundation.
A brilliant dissection of the mores of child-rearing, marriage, adultery and euthanasia, Mother's Milk showcases Edward St. Aubyn's luminous and acidic prose - and his masterful ability to combine the most excrutiating emotional pain with the driest comedy.

Here is the book !
I made a big journey, all the way to Belgium. I guess I like it there, although it's wet and grey and cold.
I will stay there for a while (there are lots of other friends to play with) and will let you know what my new -temporary- home thought of me afterwards !
