“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). Basis for the 2000 film starring Christian Bale, Willem Dafoe and Jared Leto.
