Not for the faint-hearted, Bret Easton Ellis's American Psycho is a notorious indictment of the modern world's obsession with money and status. First published in 1991, this black-hearted satire has provoked admiration and controversy ever since.Patrick Bateman is twenty-six and works on Wall Street; he is handsome, charming and intelligent. He is also a psychopath. This bitter black comedy takes a hilarious and spine-chilling look at the preoccupations of modern American society, and in so doing exposes the darkness that lurks behind the mask.'A serious, clever and shatteringly effective piece of writing . . . For its savagely coherent picture of a society lethally addicted to blandness, it should be judged by the highest standards'SUNDAY TIMES
