'A writer of real American genius' GQ Bret Easton Ellis is most famous for his era-defining novel American Psycho and its terrifying anti-hero, Patrick Bateman. With that book, and many times since, Ellis proved himself to be one of the world's most fearless and clear-sighted observers of society - the glittering surface and the darkness beneath.

Produktbeschreibung
'A writer of real American genius' GQ Bret Easton Ellis is most famous for his era-defining novel American Psycho and its terrifying anti-hero, Patrick Bateman. With that book, and many times since, Ellis proved himself to be one of the world's most fearless and clear-sighted observers of society - the glittering surface and the darkness beneath. In White, his first work of non-fiction, Ellis offers a wide-ranging exploration of what the hell is going on right now. He tells personal stories from his own life. He writes with razor-sharp precision about the music, movies, books and TV he loves and hates. He examines the ways our culture, politics and relationships have changed over the last four decades. He talks about social media, Hollywood celebrities and Donald Trump. Ellis considers conflicting positions without flinching and adheres to no status quo. His forthright views are powered by a fervent belief in artistic freedom and freedom of speech. Candid, funny, entertaining and blisteringly honest, he offers opinions that are impossible to ignore and certain to provoke. What he values above all is the truth. 'The culture at large seemed to encourage discourse,' he writes, 'but what it really wanted to do was shut down the individual.' Bret Easton Ellis will not be shut down.

Autorenporträt
Ellis, Bret EastonBret Easton Ellis wurde 1964 in Los Angeles geboren. Er besuchte die private Buckley School und begann 1986 ein Musikstudium am Bennington College in Vermont. Schon während seiner Highschool-Zeit bis in die Anfänge der 80er-Jahre spielte Ellis Keyboard in diversen New-Wave-Bands und wollte ursprünglich Musiker werden. Im Laufe des Studiums zog es ihn jedoch immer mehr zum Schreiben. Mit 21 Jahren veröffentlichte Ellis das Debüt »Unter Null« und zog zwei Jahre später nach New York City. 1991 erschien »American Psycho«, der Roman machte ihn endgültig zum Kultautor. Seit 2006 lebt er wieder in Los Angeles, in der Nähe von Beverly Hills.Drechsler, ClaraClara Drechsler, geboren 1961, und Harald Hellmann, geboren 1958, übersetzen gemeinsam aus dem Englischen, u.a.
