    Politics Intrudes On Ellis's World

    * In a twist that just proves the whole 6 degrees of separation theory, Rielle Hunter, the woman John Edwards was/is having an affair with used to hang in the same circles as Bret Easton Ellis and briefly dated Ellis' pal Jay McInerney back in the 1980's.

    She left such an impression on these two that she became the character Allison Poole in McInerney's novel Story Of My Life, and in Glamorama and American Psycho from Ellis.

    * I know I'm way behind the times with this, but life just keeps getting in the way.

    Online Chat With BEE

    21st Century Lit has a transcript from a recent online chat with some college newspaper editors. Its a pretty long chat, but I did find it interesting that Ellis still says that Glamorama is his favorite novel. Usually, writers fall in love with whatever their most recent work is - especially when they are still trying to sell copies of it.

    Ellis Interview, New To Me

    Thanks to Mitch in the forum for pointing to this audio interview with Ellis by the BBC from mid 2005. Ellis talks about Lunar Park, American Psycho and a whole lot about Glamorama.

    Ellis Interview

    The Morning News has an interview up with Bret by Robert Birnbaum. Robert has chatted with Bret a few times over the past couple of years, so his interview is quite different than most folks because he doesn't have to ask the obvious questions. [Thanks to Tim and Settemod for sending this in]

    The only real future project nugget is Bret's response when asked about The Informers:
    BEE: And that has a script and looks like it's going to go, yeah.
    This would be the Nicholas Jarecki script mentioned last year, so hopefully its still progressing.

    Video Interview With Ellis

    Here is a 25-minute interview with Ellis by a Danish TV host (its in English, though the introduction is not). Ellis talks about Lunar Park, American Psycho, fame, 9/11 and terrorism in what I found to be a great interview.

    One of the things I was happy to hear was Bret saying that he would not apologize for American Psycho. He did say that he was more sympathetic with those that were shocked by the book, but wouldn't go so far as to apologize.

    He did again say that he wanted to write a sequel to Less Than Zero as his next novel. He followed that up by saying he thinks its probably a bad idea, but that he's likely to do it anyway.

    Thanks to Christian for sending this in.

    Interview and Italian Book Covers

    Andrew Billen interviewed Bret for The Times Online and I realized that I never posted it to the site. Included in the interview is the first definitive statements I've seen about who Michael Wade Kaplan was (the book is dedicated to him and Bret's father). As per usual though, the best is saved for last when Bret is asked about the scene in the book where he inherits all his father's suits only to find that the crotches are blood covered from a botched penile implant.
    Assure me, I say, that that detail was made up. "No," he (Ellis) says. "That one's true." I blanch. "Sorry," he says, "you wanted to know."
    Also, thanks to a comment left by Davidian in another thread, we now know what the Italian cover for Lunar Park looks like (pictured above). Its not bad, but certainly not great.

    The Italian cover's for Bret's other books are after the jump.

    European Tour Dates

    I don't know all of the European tour dates, but when I do, they'll be put here - and there will be a link to them in box on the top right hand corner of the site.

    According to the official Netherlands BEE site, Bret is going to make an appearance in Koningsplein on October 15th at 3PM. [thanks Servaas]

    I also notice that the Netherlands has a different book cover for Lunar Park than I've seen anywhere else - the moon is brown instead of grey, more of a harvest moon I guess. They also spell Bret's name wrong in the title and in alot of the head tags.

    Here are the remaining foreign book covers from the site. Suprisingly nothing there for The Informers.
