Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Arguably the novel of the 1990’s … Glamorama should establish Ellis as the most ambitious and fearless writer of his generation…. It is perfectly of out time … a must read.” —The Settle Times

 

“Impeccable… cold and pitiless and modern.… Ellis] captures a cultural moment of racial dandyhood, where distinctions of sexuality seem less important that whether you look like a model and wear Prada.” —The Village Voice

 

“Compelling and scary. A political thriller bursting with conspiracies, double agents and international terrorism. Glamorama is like a Semtex attack on our superficialities.” —The Face

Ellis is fast becoming a writer of real American genius.” —GQ

His best work to date.... He remains a laser-precise satirist but the wit now dominates.” —Esquire

From the Trade Paperback edition.
