This extraordinary and instantlyMoreThe cult classic re-issued to celebrate its 25th anniversary, before the publication of the sequel, Imperial Bedrooms In 1985, Bret Easton Ellis shocked, stunned and disturbed with his debut novel, Less Than Zero. This extraordinary and instantly infamous work has done more than simply define a genre, it has become a rare thing: a cult classic and a timeless embodiment of the zeitgeist. Filled with relentless drinking in seamy bars and glamorous nightclubs, wild, drug-fuelled parties, and dispassionate sexual encounters, Less Than Zero is a fierce coming-of-age story, justifiably celebrated for its unflinching depiction of hedonistic youth, its brutal portrayal of the inexorable consequences of such moral depravity, and its authors refusal to condone or chastise such behaviour.The novels protagonist, Clay, comes home to Los Angeles on break from his East Coast college. He re-enters a landscape of limitless privilege and absolute moral entropy, where the natives drive Porsches, dine at Spago, and gobble their quaaludes from Pez dispensers. While home, Clay tries to renew his romance with his old girlfriend, Blair, and attempts to re-establish his close friendship with his best bud, Julian, who is careering into hustling and heroin. Clays holiday turns into a dizzying spiral of desperation that takes him through relentless parties in glitzy mansions, seedy bars, and underground rock clubs, and also into the seamy world of L.A. after dark.
