Product picture for American Psychoby Bret Easton Ellis
Book › Paperback
American Psycho is a very shocking and brutal book by American author Bret Easton Ellis. It's about a yuppie and a psychopath who commits brutal murders in New York. The description of the brutal murders leaves little to the imagination, so the book is not really suitable for the more sensitive souls among us. It is a monument of the American novel that requires some effort by the reader because of its graphic style, but also because of the wayward pace of the book that is in line with the...

Book cover from The Rules of Attractionby Bret Easton Ellis
Book › Paperback
Set at a small, affluent liberal-arts college in New England at the height of the Reagan 80s, The Rules of Attraction is a startlingly funny, kaleidoscopic novel about three students with no plans for the future--or even the present--who become entangled in a curious romantic triangle.

The basis of the major motion picture starring Billy Bob Thornton, KimBasinger and Mickey Rourke, The Informers is a seductive and chillingly nihilistic novel, in which Bret Easton Ellis, returns to Los Angeles, the city whose moral badlands he portrayed so unforgettably in Less Than Zero.

Scott Fitzgerald to Hunter S. Thompson and Jim Morrison. The hotel has provided a refuge where both partying and privacy are equally...
