Lunar Park

3.6 based on 15174 ratings & 597 reviews on Goodreads.com

He became a bestselling novelist while still in college, immediately famous and wealthy. He watched his insufferable father reduced to a bag of ashes in a safety-deposit box. He was lost in a haze of booze, drugs and vilification. Then he was given a second chance.

This is the life of Bret Easton Ellis, the subject of this remarkable novel. Confounding one expectation after another, Lunar Park is equally hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking. It’s the most original novel of an extraordinary career – and best of all: it all happened, every word is true.

‘An enormously entertaining novel, powered by a celebratory fun entirely absent in the writing of the generation of American writers who succeeded Ellis’ Independent

‘Great emotional complexity and depth . . . it’s a very interesting ride with an always interesting novelist – and, as such, is one worth taking’ The Times

‘Sharply observed, insidiously disquieting and extremely funny’ Literary Review

‘A triumphant piece of storytelling from a rebel whose work is controversial precisely because its sinister themes are so dexterously written’ Chris Cleave, Sunday Telegraph
