Now a major motion picture from Lion's Gate Films starring Christian Bale (Metroland), Chloe Sevigny (The Last Days of Disco), Jared Leto (My So Called Life), and Reese Witherspoon (Cruel Intentions), and directed by Mary Harron (I Shot Andy Warhol).

In American Psycho, Bret Easton Ellis imaginatively explores the incomprehensible depths of madness and captures the insanity of violence in our time or any other. Patrick Bateman moves among the young and trendy in 1980s Manhattan.

Expressing his true self through torture and murder, Bateman prefigures an apocalyptic horror that no society could bear to confront.

What People are Saying About This

Katherine Dunn

A masterful satire and a ferocious, hilarious, ambitions, inspiring piece of writing, which has large elements of Jane Austen at her vitriolic best. An important book.

Norman Mailer

The first novel to come along in years that takes on deep and Dostoyevskian themes . . . [Ellis] is showing older authors where the hands have come to on the clock . . . He has forced us to look at intolerable material, and so few novelists try for that anymore.

Fay Weldon

Bret Easton Ellis is a very, very good writer [and] American Psycho is a beautifully controlled, careful, important novel. . . The novelist's function is to keep a running tag on the progress of the culture; and he's done it brilliantly. . . A seminal book.
