Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This tale of privileged college students at their self-absorbed and childish worst is the very book that countless students have dreamed of writing at their most self-absorbed and childish moments....[T]he narrative relies on the stalest staples of melodrama...without giving the impression that anything is happening or that any of it matters." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[Ellis's] novels bypass the mind completely; they exist only in the marketplace." The New Yorker

Review:

"Serves to establish Mr. Ellis's reputation further as one of the primary inside sources in upper-middle-class America's continuing investigation of what has happened to its children." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Ellis is, first and last, a moralist. Under cover of his laconic voice, every word in his [novels] springs from grieving outrage at our spiritual condition." Los Angeles Times Book Review

Review:

"Inspired. A wonderfully comic novel." Gore Vidal
