Classic or anus dust? Does anybody here address everybody they know as "baby"?

Fuckface yeah, baby no...as to the question, classic, if only for detailing another use for pvc tubing and french cheese.

In Los Angeles people are afraid to merge. That's what I remember most from Less Than Zero. And the girl who didn't like cum shots in porn. The Rules of Attraction was better (it got deeper into its "shallow" characters) though less iconic than Zero. The Informers is Less Than Zero rewritten, though better written plus with vampires. Haven't read American Psycho or Glamorama. Three I have read, all good = classic.

AP, Friday, 15 June 2001 00:00 (eighteen years ago) Permalink

Glamorama is easily the WORST book I have *EVER* read!!! I know that it is probably meant as a pisstake of the celebrity obsessed, namedropping, party boy lifestyle of trustafarians in NYC, but goddammit, Ellis just seemed too seriously *into* it to be satire or even funny. And the fucking spy subplot with the clones and the camera crews... I mean what the fuck was THAT?!?!?

The only amusement I derived out of it was the fact that the entire time I was reading it, I was painfully, consciously aware of the fact that it was the WORST novel I had ever read, and the only reason I kept reading it was to see if it coule possibly get any worse. And it always DID!!! Astounding!

'Less than Zero' did impress me. 'The Rules of Attraction' seemed a lame rehash of the same story/ideas. 'American Psycho' I started, but didn't finish, more boring than shocking, bad consumerist satire. 'Informers' and 'Glamorama' haven't tempted me. He can write, but his range seems too limited.

Stevo, Saturday, 16 June 2001 00:00 (eighteen years ago) Permalink

Half great, half dreadful. Blinding: large chunks of American Psycho, the New York section of Glamorama (hugely funny). Important, addictive but probably really flimsy if you try to read it now: Less Than Zero. Everything else is dull, apart from the last bits of GLamorama which is simply incoherent. And underrated, by people who refuse to admit that American Psycho was a satire, on the grounds that a smug guy who wore a suit and drank cocktails in NYC could have contempt for other people who did the same. Business card & Huey Lewis scenes of both novel & movie versions of American Psycho say it all about the culture of late capitalism...

Mark Morris, Saturday, 16 June 2001 00:00 (eighteen years ago) Permalink

Classic. The 'record reviews' in 'American Psycho' provide some of the most detailed (indirect) characterization (from an 'unreliable narrator', one of my favorite devices) I've seen. Every word in them was chosen perfectly, though there's that sly flourish at the end of the "Huey Lewis" one. "And also you cannot dance to it very well..."

brett easton ellis is really clever with what he does. In fact is he like one of the best American Writer's or what? I thought American pycho and Glamorama were his best books, some of the best one's out there in tghis short of stile. He writes so well, his character's come alive. There not just about violence, Easton Ellis get's some real messages across. EG Money versus reputation, and vice versa. I thought Less than Zero was sort of shit, just boring but written in a fun style, the only thing that kept me reading it. You appreciate it more when you read his later stuff. Rules of attraction is pretty much the same, just bigger and maybe more to it, story line that is. Oh yea and Don Dalillo rules, he's like one of America's greatest writer's as well, along with Pychon, thou his stuff is just totally a head fuck or what? It's so crazy it leaves you feeling punch drunk, recommmended. I want to get my hand's on David Foster Wallace cause I hear he's got some good stuff. Oh yea and Chuck paliniuk is a fucking great writer as well, read all his stuff, loved all his stuff. just read it for crying out loud, this is what it's all about. If you don't like the way Brett easton ellis writes that's okay but once you get it you got it and I loved it. Can't wate for the next book, I'll be camping out for it. See ya

I'm reading Glamorama and I'm bothered by the timeline. I know Victor is 27 and I know the story takes place in 1997 or thereabouts (based on references to music, ie. Dave Matthews' Band's "Crash Into Me"). However, when Victor first meets Palakon he says something to the effect of "You attended Camden College from 1982 to 1986". This just doesn't work out to me...that would put him there at ages 12 to 16.

Maybe this gets explained later in the novel, but it's bothering me now. I find it hard to go further with such discrepancies.

That would have been when BEE went to the liberal college he attended - not Camden, was it? I read an interview with him, but can't remember. I love his writing style - I think a lot also about whether he's gay, how gay he is, and whether this is relevant.

I Interviewed him after Glamorama. I'd been led to believe he would be a reticent and gllomy sort in a long black coat. He turned up in jogging pants after going for a morning run, and he was a lovely, warm and funny man. Very childlike and engaging.

I like BEE. HE is nice man. I not read any of his book tho cos I not like reedin. Troo.

I'm gonna put SPOILERS in on American Psycho:

--------------------

Only read American Psycho which is amazing and made me feel superior to just about everyone I know who had read it who didn't get it or didn't understand what was happening and assumed it was meant to be taken as literal narration.

I love the conversation where Bateman is seems to be saying all the vile things flitting through his head but his female companion is just responding as if he's saying small talk (which obviously he is in objective reality).

And the record reviews are brilliant. Very well utilised in the film - though I heard there's an exploitation sequel which again assumes its all real.

“I’ve been rated and reviewed since I became a published author at the age of twenty-one, and I’ve grown entirely comfortable in being both liked and disliked, adored and despised.”

As the review correctly points out, this is bullshit. I saw him at Guardian book club about ten years ago (?) and he was talking about the reception of American Psycho got & he thought he had got the level of the detail of the violence in the book wrong and people had dismissed the book because of it. But he really seems to have never got past being called a misogynist and it is something he always, always goes back to. I never thought he was a misogynist because of his writing, but I did because of the things he says about women in interviews! I’ve always been interested in how different people view art and how they look at art as a reflection on the morals of the artist - but that’s a whole world away from his lazy edgelord opinions.

I read the whole thing, which was excruciating. Here's what I posted on a friend's FB thread:

"I’m a fan of his, with reservations post-2013. (He isn’t making it easy.) As I said on someone else’s share of this interview, I’m actually HAPPY this interview happened - because it might help inspire Ellis to shut the fuck up about politics, which he’s admittedly misinformed about (not just here, but on his podcast and social media) and stick to what actually makes him INTERESTING and of value for many of us who follow him - which gets drowned out by the political/cultural stuff, which grabs headlines and has transformed him into an all-around punching bag - his aesthetic perspectives on film and literature."

In the next week or two I'll have a review of White out in the world, which I'll link here when it's up.

Lactose Shaolin Wanker (Raymond Cummings), Thursday, 11 April 2019 20:21 (two months ago) Permalink

my impression is that his fiction, and its portrayal of people who are often decadent and at best morally ambivalent, reflects his actual view of human nature. the validation of his work being successful has made him think that everyone's like one of his characters and doesn't get why claiming real life figures and their behavior falls within acceptable boundaries brings outrage

he's not exactly a writer of stories where characters come to epiphanies about their own behavior although he's due a few of his own
