Synopsis

Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho is one of the most controversial and talked-about novels of all time. A multi-million-copy bestseller hailed as a modern classic, it is a violent and outrageous black comedy about the darkest side of human nature.

With an introduction by Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting.

I like to dissect girls. Did you know I’m utterly insane?

Patrick Bateman has it all: good looks, youth, charm, a job on Wall Street, and reservations at every new restaurant in town. He is also a psychopath. A man addicted to his superficial, perfect life, he pulls us into a dark underworld where the American Dream becomes a nightmare . . .

Part of the Picador Collection, a series showcasing the best of modern literature.
