Set in LA during the early 1980's, this novel is a raw, powerful portrait of a lost generation who have experienced sex, drugs, and disaffection at too early an age, in a world shaped by casual nihilism, passivity, and too much money. Ellis published the novel at age 21 launching his career. This book was banned for drug abuse, sexual content, language and a bisexual main character. If you collect challenged books, this piece of fiction is one you want on your library shelf.
