American Psycho

A novel

Now a major motion picture from Lion's Gate Films starring Christian Bale ( Metroland ), Chloe Sevigny ( The Last Days of Disco ), Jared Leto ( My So Called Life ), and Reese Witherspoon ( Cruel Intentions ), and directed by Mary Harron ( I Shot Andy Warhol ).
In American Psycho , Bret Easton Ellis imaginatively explores the incomprehensible depths of madness and captures the insanity of violence in our time or any other. Patrick Bateman moves among the young and trendy in 1980s Manhattan. Young, handsome, and well educated, Bateman earns his fortune on Wall Street by day while spending his nights in ways we cannot begin to fathom. Expressing his true self through torture and murder, Bateman prefigures an apocalyptic horror that no society could bear to confront.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Rezension
"Bret Easton Ellis is a very, very good writer [and] American Psycho is a beautifully controlled, careful, important novel.... The novelist's function is to keep a running tag on the progress of culture; and he's done it brilliantly.... A seminal book." -Fay Weldon, The Washington Post
"A masterful satire and a ferocious, hilarious, ambitious, inspiring piece of writing, which has large elements of Jane Austen at her vitriolic best. An important book." -Katherine Dunn
"A great novel. What Emerson said about genius, that it's the return of one's rejected thoughts with an alienated majesty, holds true for American Psycho .... There is a fever to the life of this book that is, in my reading, unknown in American literature." -Michael Tolkin
"The first novel to come along in years that takes on deep and Dostoyevskian themes.... [Ellis] is showing older authors where the hands come to on the clock." -Norman Mailer, Vanity Fair
From the Trade Paperback edition.
