Is evil something you are? Or is it something you do?
Patrick Bateman has it all: good looks, youth, charm, a job on Wall Street, reservations at every new restaurant in town and a line of girls around the block. He is also a psychopath. A man addicted to his superficial, perfect life, he pulls us into a dark underworld where the American Dream becomes a nightmare . . .
With an introduction by Irvine Welsh, Bret Easton Ellis's American Psycho is one of the most controversial and talked-about novels of all time. A multi-million-copy bestseller hailed as a modern classic, it is a violent black comedy about the darkest side of human nature.

A masterful satire and a ferocious, hilarious, ambitious, inspiring piece of writing, which has large elements of Jane Austen at her vitriolic best. An important book. Katherine Dunn
A great novel. What Emerson said about genius, that it s the return of one s rejected thoughts with an alienated majesty, holds true for American Psycho . There is a fever to the life of this book that is, in my reading, unknown in American literature. Michael Tolkin
The first novel to come along in years that takes on deep and Dostoyevskian themes . [Ellis] is showing older authors where the hands come to on the clock. Norman Mailer, Vanity Fair
