Book I Finished Reading but Wanted My Time Back AfterwardsRead about the other nine items on Cross' list.
No contest. American Psycho by Brett Easton Ellis. Corrupted, self-important nonsense smothered in blubber. The skeleton of a fine novella — something with the potential length and stature of Heart of Darkness. As it is, American Psycho continues a steady cultural decline — from controversy, through the alternative canon, to kitsch. The only book in the history of publishing that might conceivably have been improved by a Reader’s Digest Condensed Edition.
American Psycho appears on Nick Brooks' top ten list of literary murderers and on Chris Power's list of his six top books on the 1980s.
