Produktbeschreibung
With an introduction by novelist Ottessa Moshfegh Eighteen-year-old college student Clay is back in his hometown of Los Angeles for Christmas break. Clay is three things: rich, bored and looking to get high. As he reacquaints himself with a familiarly limitless world of privilege, along with his best friend and his ex, his shocking, stunning and disturbing adventure is filled with non-stop drinking in glamorous nightclubs, drug-fuelled parties, and endless sexual encounters. Published in 1985, when Bret Easton Ellis was just twenty-one, Less Than Zero is a fierce coming-of-age story which quickly defined a genre. A cult classic beloved for its dogged portrayal of hedonistic youth and the morally depraved, this extraordinary and instantly famous novel is a landmark in modern fiction: an inventive, precocious and invigorating story of getting what you want when you want it.

Autorenporträt
Bret Easton Ellis, geboren 1964 in einem Vorort von Los Angeles, wohnhaft in New York City, gilt als einer der kontroversesten, aber auch sprachgewaltigsten jungen Autoren seiner Generation. Mit 19 schrieb er seinen Debütroman, einen schonungslosen Zustandsbericht über das dekadente aber orientierungslose Leben der Yuppies in den 80ern, der 1996 erfolgreich verfilmt wurde. 1987 erschien sein zweiter Roman bevor er 1991 endgültig zum Kultautor aufstieg.
