Imperial Bedrooms by Bret Easton Ellis

Imperial Bedrooms (2010)(novel) by Bret Easton Ellis  (American Psycho (1991), Lunar Park (2005))  Imperial Bedrooms, a present day sequel to Ellis’ 1985 best-selling debut novel Less Than Zero containing many of the same characters as they approach middle-age, surges with scenes of sex, extreme violence and hedonism recounted in Ellis’ characteristic emotionless, rather minimalist style.  Though the scene is Los Angeles, and the protagonist himself a screen writer, Imperial Bedrooms, it may be said, has crossed over to the very, very dark side when compared to John Fante’s moving 1939 novel  Ask the Dust, part of his tetralogy The Bandini Quartets.
