THE CONTROVERSIAL SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER.

Candid, fearless and provocative
- the author of American Psycho on who he is and what he thinks is wrong with the world today.

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.

Rezensionen
"The true scourge for Ellis is censorship." Eli Roth, Interview
 
"Playfully provocative . . . a feature-length yawp, equal parts memoir and State of the Union address, that will infuriate or delight. . . . [Ellis] rails against the diktats of the politically correct." Charles Arrowsmith, The Washington Post
 
"Ellis's true purpose . . . is to offend young, progressive readers." Andrea Long Chu, Bookforum
 
"Fiercely independent, sometimes controversial, and always outspoken . . . White will surely anger some readers." Peter Larsen, The Orange County Register 
 
"Tough-minded and realistic. . . . Ellis will lose friends over this book." Barton Swaim, The Wall Street Journal

"[In] his first book in nine years and his nonfiction debut Ellis exudes the same youthful spirit he s always had: of irreverent amusement, quiet irony, indefatigable artistic curiosity. He s a living embodiment of how, between the predigital world of 1985 and today, both everything and nothing has changed. And it s been Ellis s life s work to make us confront the absurdity of that world in all its grimness, comedy and plastic beauty." Lauren Christensen, The New York Times

If Joan Didion is the California ice queen who picked apart the increasingly threadbare fabric of 70s American society, then, with White, Bret Easton Ellis is her heir apparent . . . shifting his focus to nonfiction for the first time [and turning his] withering eye to the social-media age. H.W. Vail, Vanity Fair

Intelligent and briskly observed. . . . [Ellis is] an artist who engages deeply with works, and his takes on film, especially, are often fascinating. . . . Ellis isn t afraid to be contrarian, and that s what makes this book so interesting. Keir Graff, Booklist

Well written [and] bubbling with attitude and self-confidence. Kirkus
