Description

Luis Carruthers – a closeted homosexual co-worker who is attracted to Bateman, something that disgusts the latter.

The most persuasive details are combined with unlikely incidents until we're not only unsure what's real, we begin to doubt the existence of reality itself. After suffering through nearly 400 pages of lovingly rendered ultra-violence against women and even more lovingly rendered descriptions of what everyone is wearing, I couldn’t help but feel like we’re not supposed to enjoy the book.

These narrators give wrong-headed accounts of events, but it is unusual for an unreliable narrator actually to lie to us. His murders become increasingly sadistic and complex, progressing from simple stabbings to drawn-out sequences of rape, torture, mutilation, cannibalism, and necrophilia, and his grasp on sanity begins to slip.

It is perfectly acceptable to bitch and moan about how the mean people didn’t like your good tweets, but there is a time and a place for such behavior, and it is not the offices of Alfred A. During the trial of Canadian serial killer Paul Bernardo, a copy was discovered in Bernardo's bedroom. White makes a few gestures at the memoir genre: passages about Ellis’s childhood as a rich, unsupervised white kid growing up in 1970s Sherman Oaks, where he developed a taste for gruesome horror flicks; the surprise success of his debut novel, Less Than Zero, which Ellis started writing when he was a teenager and saw published while a junior at Bennington; the cocaine-hazed Manhattan where Ellis, a member of the literary Brat Pack, wrote American Psycho between benders in the late ’80s.The Toronto Sun reported that Bernardo "read it as his 'bible '", [36] [37] though it turned out it actually belonged to his wife and accomplice Karla Homolka; it is unlikely Bernardo ever read it. It is rare for an academic to coin a term that becomes common critical parlance, yet Chicago Professor Wayne C Booth managed just this in his 1961 book The Rhetoric of Fiction. Christian Bale modeled his brilliant performance on Tom Cruise after watching the famed Scientologist on TV with David Letterman. An 'American Psycho' Drama: Books: The flap surrounding Bret Easton Ellis's third novel flares again. One supposes that the last freethinking men of ancient Sumer, lamenting that cuneiform had ruined their political discourse, must have longed for the good old days of throwing rocks at each other’s heads.
