Description - Dunbar by Edward St Aubyn
Comedy and tragedy converge in this tale of high finance and brutal family betrayal, from 'The most brilliant English novelist of his generation' Alan Hollinghurst
From the author of the Patrick Melrose novels, now a major Sky Atlantic television series starring Benedict Cumberbatch
Henry Dunbar, the once all-powerful head of a global media corporation, is not having a good day. In his dotage he handed over care of the corporation to his two eldest daughters, Abby and Megan. But relations quickly soured, leaving him to doubt the wisdom of past decisions.
Now imprisoned in a care home in the Lake District with only a demented alcoholic comedian as company, Dunbar starts planning his escape. As he flees into the hills, his family is hot on his heels. Who will find him first, his beloved youngest daughter, Florence, or the tigresses Abby and Megan, so keen to divest him of his estate?
