Imperial Bedrooms by Bret Easton Ellis

imperial bedroomsI love Bret Easton Ellis’s style – the little skits / lens in on someone life and into their psyche.

But it ain’t as good in this one as in American Psycho.

In Imperial Bedrooms we follow Clay a screenwriter as he returns to LA having been hiding out in New York for a while.

It’s never made entirely clear why he was in New York, and you quickly learn that his “friends” are a pretty weird, twisted bunch.

The novel quickly descends into a very dark and sinister place, and you finish it still not really understanding what’s gone on.

Not one of my faves.
