Author Info
Bret Easton Ellis
Bret Easton Ellis published his first novel LESS THAN ZERO when he was 21 and still an undergraduate at Bennington College. The novel revolved around a young man who returns from college to Los Angeles and becomes disheartened by the moral vacuousness of his friends. Themes of apathy, disillusionment, and depravity would continue in his subsequent novels, notably AMERICAN PSYCHO, the story of a psychopathic yuppie murderer, which was made into a film starring Christian Bale. Ellis is also known for using reoccurring characters in his novels, with minor characters in one novel appearing as the protagonist of another. Born in Los Angeles, his father abandoned the family when Ellis was six. He now lives in New York City.
