Admirers of Patrick McGrath’s work know what to expect from his fiction. The grotesque and the macabre dominate his work. "Trauma" – his new novel – is no exception. In an unreliable first person narrative, this disturbing new novel includes aspects of mental illness and sexual obsession, and in general, a distressing ambiance. All in all, it’s highly recommended and jolly good fun. (Booksmith_in_SF)
