American Psycho remains one of the most notorious horror novels ever published. Originally slated for publication by Simon and Schuster, the hardcover edition was cancelled and the novel was published in trade paperback by Vintage. The novel met immediately with attacks and condemnation, but was simultaneously praised by some of the brightest literary lights.
Now, Centipede Press is set to release a signed, limited edition of only 200 copies in late October. This edition features a fine new introduction by John Langan and a lengthy interview with Bret Easton Ellis. This is the first American hardcover edition of this novel ever published.
Description: 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. Young, handsome, and well educated, Bateman earns his fortune on Wall Street by day while spending his nights in ways we cannot begin to fathom. Expressing his true self through torture and murder, Bateman prefigures an apocalyptic horror that no society could bear to confront.
About The Author: Bret Easton Ellis is the author of five novels and a collection of short stories; his work has been translated into twenty-seven languages. He lives in Los Angeles.
Each numbered copy is signed by Bret Easton Ellis, John Langan and Ben Baldwin.
