Bret Easton Ellis has wrestled with the double-edged sword of fame and notoriety for more than 30 years now. An enigmatic figure who has always gone against the grain and refused categorization, he captured the depravity of the ’80s with one of contemporary literature's most polarizing characters, AMERICAN PSYCHO's iconic, terrifying Patrick Bateman. In recent years, his candor and gallows humor on both Twitter and his podcast have continued his legacy as someone determined to speak the truth, however painful it might be. Now, in WHITE, Ellis pours himself out onto the page and, in doing so, eviscerates the perceived good that the social-media age has wrought, starting with the dangerous cult of likability.
