Author(s): Bret Easton Ellis
Clay is a successful screenwriter, middle-aged and disaffected; he's in LA to cast his new movie. However, this trip is anything other than professional, and he's soon drifting through a louche and long-familiar circle - a world largely populated by the band of infamous teenagers first introduced in "Less Than Zero". But his debauched reverie is about to be interrupted by a violent plot for revenge and Clay's seemingly endless proclivity for betrayal and exploitation looks set to land him somewhere darker and more ominous than ever before. Reviews: "His tautest, most compulsively readable work since "American Psycho". A sequel to "Less Than Zero", it imagines what became of that book's group of over-privileged, dead-eyed kids as forty-year-olds". (Hari Kunzru). "A murder mystery - a woozy, paranoid, hallucinatory version of LA noir". ("Sunday Times). "Brilliantly written and coolly self-aware...Here, as in "Less Than Zero", Ellis is plumbing the depths of human nature, exposing it at its worst". ("Observer"). "The novel is a kind of modern noir and, as in Chandler, the form's accepted master, atmosphere is king. Paranoia prevails". ("Independent on Sunday").
