Bret Easton Ellis
Guy Lochhead, 21/05/10
American novelist and short story writer. His work is characterised by its ‘unconventional’ character lifestyles – his (largely young) characters have long and short-term relationships with men and women, take a lot of drugs and generally try to escape their boredom in whatever way they can. This echoes Ellis’ own lifestyle. I respect and enjoy reading Ellis’ books, but they’re not that constructive. They don’t make me want to do anything. I just end up feeling like one of the characters. However, I do want to include Ellis’ ‘Camden College’, separately.
