Well, I made a community for the book and movie of Less Than Zero back in November. And because of this community, maybe it would be pretty relevant to talk about it.

Wake up, Bret Easton Ellis community! [13 Mar 2009|05:31pm]

The Informers is set to come out next month!

You can see the unrated (and very NSFW) trailer here.

There do seem to be rumors that the vampire subplot is gone, though. How disappointing.

New Community [09 Dec 2008|05:00pm]

I'd like to invite anybody interested to join Meat and Bones.

It's a new community created by regularbean and myself ehmaz , dedicated to anything and everything American Psycho. Head on over so you can see the rules post (not as boring as it sounds, trust me!) and get a good grasp on what this community is all about. I didn't see that making comm advertisements was against the rules, but feel free, mods, to delete it if it is. :)

i do marking and pr for a bookstore in Decatur, GA. just got this mailing from my rep at simon and schuster. not sure from whence it originates. (it also begs the question-that film treatment for molly jong-fast...wha happen?)

2 years ago Jeff Hobbs left New York behind for Los Angeles, moving the day after his wedding when his new wife got a production job. But as the LA Times' Scott Timberg reports, Hobbs didn't completely leave Manhattan behind as it serves as the backdrop for his uber-charmed debut novel THE TOURISTS, already landing the 27 year old great notices from the likes of Los Angeles Magazine that whisper something along the lines of "this is the next GREAT GATSBY."

"There's a wistfulness to it that's missing from a lot of contemporary fiction by people in their 20s," said Bret Easton Ellis, who mentored Hobbs and helped sharpen the novel. "And a sadness that seems very adult, as if Jeff has lived much longer than he actually has. I think that's why it feels like a throwback. The books I see from debut novelists aren't anything like this — they aren't nearly this worldly." As for how that mentoring took place? A mutual friend's doing, and Ellis originally commented on a previous Hobbs manuscript, then worked extensively on what became THE TOURISTS, which Simon & Schuster is publishing today.

In other words, not many writers get this kind of attention, and Hobbs recognizes he's led something of a charmed life. But Timberg finds for someone with that degree of early success - a major-house book contract with little previously published writing, fruitful friendship with famous novelist, rave review in a glossy magazine — his lack of arrogance is almost touching. "I want to apologize to you in advance, actually," he said, almost making eye contact, "because I sit in a room alone all day and mostly talk to my dog." As for writing a contemporary GATSBY, Hobbs was taken aback. "Gatsby," he said, is "kind of a book about a bunch of murderers. But it's thought of as this tragic love story. I'm almost embarrassed by the comparison."

i'd really like to know how, despite the first song on the new bloc party album being titled "song for clay (disappear here)" and the chorus lyrics consisting of "people/are afraid/are afraid to merge/on freeways", i totally had the less than zero references zoom past my head.

You now have a reason to get Showtime... [14 Dec 2006|10:34am]

[ mood | excited ]

and I mean for something other than the naked movies they show after 11PM.

Here's the link for the new show. Which, I just found out, has already been posted previously.

But it looks like he's been really busy. Mr. Ellis just won an IHG Award for best novel and it looks like there are talks with Adam Goldberg for the rights to a Lunar Park movie. Not to mention, he's been overheard as saying he's currently starting another novel...which still means it could be another eight years before the general public sees it.

Who knows? Maybe him breaking his foot and cancelling his tour was a good thing after all.

New Series [13 Dec 2006|05:55am]

NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Showtime is headed for "The Canyons," a horror-tinged soap opera originated by "American Psycho" novelist Bret Easton Ellis.

The pay cable network has ordered a script for the project, about a group twenty- and thirtysomethings in Los Angeles. It centers on a 29-year-old magazine editor who escapes his hard-partying New York life by following his best friend and a new girlfriend across the country, only to find himself virtually isolated when his friend is killed in a mysterious accident.

The six main characters -- including an art gallery owner, lawyer, event planner and a closeted bartender -- deal with career and relationship issues. They encounter violent situations and anxieties that are briefly manifested as monsters and other apparitions that may or may not be real.

this community would benefit well from tags. [18 Oct 2006|03:32am]


This seems to be a pretty logical breakdown of American Psycho.

Anyone see any loopholes?

On another topic, I hate the last chapter of the book. It seems as if BEE just gave up at that point and then picked a clever last sentence to say it was a bad way to end the book as well.

Fresh From Page Six [23 Sep 2006|12:05pm]

[ mood | disappointed ]

According to the Not An Exit site, the Lunar Park paperback tour has been cancelled. As of Thursday, the rumor that was flying around was that Mr. Ellis fractured his ankle. Here's the article.

I'm a little curious about the skepticism of the article, and even the bookstore here that was to host the signing, especially seeing that he openly admitted to missing signing sessions on his Glamorama tour due to his "allergies". Any thoughts?

Lunar Park Paperback Tour [03 Aug 2006|10:18am]

[ mood | excited ]

I've noticed no one else has posted this, so I thought I would go ahead and post for everyone.

Dates of TourCollapse )

You might want to call some of these book stores well in advance to see if tickets might be required or if it's just first come, first serve basis. When I attended his signing in Seattle last year, it was recommended to show up two hours early just to guarantee a seat despite how large the store was.

time has decided there's no writer for the "current" generation

and, while falling back on coupland as the "last great current writer", they use BEE as a source, and he's got some good stuff to say:

The process by which the Voice is anointed is a mysterious one. "I think youth has a lot to do with it," says Ellis, whose latest novel, Lunar Park, came out last summer. "Being the first--and not necessarily the best, just the first--to capture what it feels like to be a member of your generation catapults you forward in a direction that doesn't happen to Jonathan Safran Foer or Zadie Smith. I guess I got lucky, because the way I wrote about us was something that a large number of people connected and agreed with. It wasn't orchestrated. There wasn't a plan."
