Bret Easton Ellis (born March 7, 1964) is an American author, screenwriter, and short story writer. His works have been translated into 27 languages. He was at first regarded as one of the so-called literary Brat Pack, which also included Tama Janowitz and Jay McInerney. He is a self-proclaimed satirist, whose trademark technique, as a writer, is the expression of extreme acts and opinions in an affectless style. Ellis employs a technique of linking novels with common, recurring characters.

  • Bret Easton Ellis (Los Ángeles, 7 de marzo de 1964) es un novelista estadounidense, considerado el mayor exponente de la Generación X en literatura, y uno de los autores posmodernos más relevantes de la actualidad. Escritor polémico, ha dejado a pocos lectores indiferentes, suscitando críticas negativas y positivas por igual. Ha sido considerado por algunos críticos como el nuevo Ernest Hemingway, para luego ser relegado a un segundo plano por muchos debido a la supuesta frialdad y escabrosidad de su prosa. Es, además, periodista, ensayista, editor de revistas literarias, conferenciante y académico.
  • Bret Easton Ellis, né le 7 mars 1964 à Los Angeles, est un écrivain américain. C'est l'un des auteurs principaux du mouvement Génération X et on le classe parfois parmi les romanciers d'anticipation sociale. Il se considère comme un moraliste, bien que certains voient en lui un nihiliste. Ses personnages sont souvent jeunes, dépravés et vains, mais ils en sont conscients et l'assument. Ellis situe ses romans dans les années 1980, faisant du mercantilisme et de l'industrie du divertissement de cette décennie un symbole. Ses livres, des dystopies (à ne pas confondre avec des contre-utopies qui répondent à un texte utopique en particulier) qui se déroulent souvent dans des métropoles américaines (comme Los Angeles et New York), sont peuplés de personnages récurrents.

  • Bret Easton Ellis (born March 7, 1964) is an American author, screenwriter, and short story writer. His works have been translated into 27 languages. He was at first regarded as one of the so-called literary Brat Pack, which also included Tama Janowitz and Jay McInerney. He is a self-proclaimed satirist, whose trademark technique, as a writer, is the expression of extreme acts and opinions in an affectless style. Ellis employs a technique of linking novels with common, recurring characters. Though Ellis made his debut at age 21 with the controversial bestseller Less Than Zero (1985), a zeitgeist novel about wealthy amoral young people in Los Angeles, the work he is most known for is his third novel, American Psycho (1991). On its release, the literary establishment widely condemned the novel as overly violent and misogynistic. Though many petitions to ban the book saw Ellis dropped by Simon & Schuster, the resounding controversy convinced Alfred A. Knopf to release it as a paperback later that year. Four of Ellis' works have been made into films. Less Than Zero was rapidly adapted for screen, leading to the release of a starkly different, eponymous film in 1987. Mary Harron's adaptation of American Psycho was released to generally positive reviews in 2000 and went on to achieve cult status. In later years, Ellis' novels have become increasingly metafictional. Lunar Park (2005), a pseudo-memoir and ghost story, received positive reviews, and Imperial Bedrooms (2010), marketed as a sequel to Less Than Zero, continues in this vein.
  • Bret Easton Ellis (Los Angeles, 7 maart 1964) is een Amerikaans auteur. Hij groeide op in een welgestelde familie in Californië. Zijn vader mishandelde hem echter. Na lange tijd in New York gewoond te hebben, is hij sinds enige tijd weer inwoner van Los Angeles. Hij wordt gerekend tot de belangrijkste Generation X-schrijvers. Ellis' boeken hebben vaak een duister thema. Less Than Zero, het boek waarmee hij op 21-jarige leeftijd debuteerde, werd door critici vergeleken met J.D. Salingers The Catcher in the Rye, maar dan voor de MTV-generatie. Ellis noemt zichzelf een moralist, terwijl hij vaak wordt afgeschilderd als een nihilist. Hij schrijft op een zeer eenvoudige en vlakke manier, waarbij hij opvallend veel gebruikmaakt van herhalingen teneinde een bezwerend, hypnotisch effect te bewerkstelligen.
