EDWARD ST. AUBYN reads and signs his novel AT LAST

Edward St. Aubyn

At Last (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)

Acclaimed British novelist Edward St. Aubyn (Mother's Milk, shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize) will read and sign his new novel At Last.

"Sparkling... With the wit of Wilde, the lightness of Wodehouse, and the waspishness of Waugh, [St. Aubyn] wraps his fancy prose style around the self in extremis ('suffocated, dropped, born of raped as well as born to be raped"), situations more familiar to readers of Cooper or Burroughs."  --Zadie Smith, Harper's

"A miraculously wrought piece of art." --Suzi Feay, The Financial Times

"St. Aubyn's technique is to crystallise emotional intensity into sentences of arctic beauty, which can be caustically witty or brutal. His novels are uncommonly well controlled, and thus their impact is all the more powerful... In At Last this crystallisation and control are on glittering display... We have reached the pinnacle of a series that has plunged into darkness and risen towards light. At Last is both resounding end and hopeful beginning." -- Philip Womack, The Telegraph

"Ferociously funny, painfully acute and exhilaratingly written... Brimming with witty flair, sardonic perceptiveness and literary finesse." --Peter Kemp, The Sunday Times

Edward St. Aubyn was born in London in 1960. He is the author of A Clue to the Exit and On the Edge, and of a series of novels about the Melrose family, the trilogy Some Hope and Mother’s Milk, which was shortlisted for the 2006 Man Booker Prize.
