Droppin like it's hot

Tomorrow the Bret Easton Ellis novel Lunar Park will be available at your local bookstore. Ellis is best known for his 1991 novel American Psycho. He hasn't written a novel since Glamorama in 1999. Ellis has gotten much heat for his seemingly nihilistic view of contemporary of American culture. His characters are young, wealthy, rudderless, and very often engage in sociopathic hobbies like serial killing. I am excited to read this book (it'll be put on my to read list, still have to finish IJ) because I was a big fan of his novels Less Than Zero and Glamorama. I felt that American Psycho was the Ellis work that I liked the least, it didn't quite have the same numbing effect that I felt after reading LTZ and it wasn't as entertaining as his 1999 outing (it was about 400 or so pages, it should have been cut in half). Anyway just wanted to give everyone the heads up about this, Ellis is an interesting novelist (quite funny as well), and if you're in the Gen X crowd he's definitely worth your attention.

Yeah, that Glamorama chapter was quite unnecessary.
