Bret Easton Ellis

Listen to Bret Easton Ellis

It was a wild night when Bret Easton Ellis came to Melbourne at the end of his tour for Imperial Bedrooms. At his most candid, BEE sets the record straight on Delta Goodrem, how Mad Men is better than any contemporary novel, why American Psycho is a great Father’s Day gift, and how he and Judd Nelson scammed Vanity Fair with their twisted take on Los Angeles.

Plus he tackles some feisty audience questions including “Do you ever wish that someone killed you at the peak of your career?”. And he discovers why he doesn’t do book tours that often.

Like any Bret Easton Ellis novel, the content is adult, so you have been warned.
