Bret Easton Ellis

When

Twenty-five years ago, New York Times bestselling author Bret Easton Ellis defined a generation with his memorable and acclaimed debut Less Than Zero. Since then he’s gone on to write another four cult classics – shocking, stunning and disturbing readers around the world with his tales of the depravity and inhumanity of modern life. In The Rules of Attraction, Glamorama, Lunar Park and, unforgettably, American Psycho, he introduced us to the world of Bret Easton Ellis: mixing absurd comedy with a bleak vision and postmodern flair.

Interviewed by Alan Brough.

Now, in his new book Imperial Bedrooms he returns to those characters who populated his debut. Where in Less than Zero they were disaffected teenagers, now a quarter of a century on, they face an even more fraught situation: middle age.

This event will be held at the Athenaeum Theatre.

Bookings open 16 July at 11am.

This event is run in partnership with Melbourne Writers Festival and Readings.
