Synopsis

The centre of the world: 1990s Manhattan. Victor Ward, a model with perfect abs and all the right friends, is seen and photographed everywhere, even in places he hasn’t been and with people he doesn’t know. On the eve of opening the trendiest nightclub in New York history, he’s living with one beautiful model and having an affair with another. Now it’s time to move to the next stage. But the future he gets is not the one he had in mind.

In Glamorama, Bret Easton Ellis shows us a shadowy looking-glass world, the juncture where fame and fashion, terror and mayhem meet and then begin to resemble the familiar surface of our lives.

Brilliant . . . He is fast becoming a writer of real American genius.

A master stylist with hideously interesting new-fangled manners and the heart of an old-fashioned moralist.
Observer
Gets under the skin of our celebrity culture in a way that is both illuminating and frightening.
