Imagine becoming a best-selling novelist, and almost immediately famous and wealthy, while still in college, and before long seeing your insufferable father reduced to a bag of ashes in a safety-deposit box, while after American Psycho your celebrity drowns in a sea of vilification, booze, and drugs.

Not Mainstream Crap
This is not a pretty novel. Like the Less Than Zero and American Psycho movies, I empathized with the main characters making me feel unclean throughout the whole novel. I found it even difficult to blink, afraid I would miss something, even though I was listening to the book. I haven't been a fan of Bret Easton Ellis simply because I haven't payed attention to who he was but I am now.
