Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Author of the highly controversial American Psycho and the exceptional debut Less Than Zero takes himself and his early fame as the core to this bizarre and powerful examination of an author out of control. Just look at the reviews.

Synopsis

Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis

Imagine becoming a bestselling novelist while still in college, and almost immediately famous and wealthy, then seeing your insufferable father reduced to a bag of ashes in a safety-deposit box, even as your celebrity drowns in a sea of vilification, booze and drugs. Imagine being given a second chance, as the Bret Easton Ellis of this remarkable novel is given. Lunar Park confounds one expectation after another, passing through comedy and mounting psychological and supernatural horror toward an astonishing resolution – about love and loss, fathers and sons – in what is surely the most original and moving novel of an extraordinary career.

Reviews

'Lunar Park is great enough to suggest that his best work may now be ahead rather than behind him; it's a very interesting ride with an always interesting novelist' The Times

'Emotionally powerful, Lunar Park is an unnerving and funny puzzle of a book: undoubtedly the real thing, as it were' Guardian

'Bret Easton Ellis has finally delivered the classic novel he promised with his wildly successful debut, Less Than Zero' Sunday Times
