I was a Bret Easton Ellis fan when he first burst on to the literary scene so was avidly looking forward to this book and I was not disappointed. The supernatural elements of the plot wound so tightly into the life of the (fictional) character Bret Easton Ellis make it all very easy to believe, as the character says himself 'all of it really happened, every word is true.'

If you like Bret Easton Ellis you might also like to read books by Chuck Palahniuk, Douglas Coupland and Will Self.

Synopsis

Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis

The most exciting novel Bret Easton Ellis has written since American Psycho, and the publishing sensation of the year. Imagine becoming a bestselling novelist while still in college and almost immediately famous and wealthy, and 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 having a second chance, as the Bret Easton Ellis of this remarkable novel is given. Now married to the mother of his previously unacknowledged son and living in the suburban hinterlands, Ellis here recounts the unraveling of this new life. He glimpses a disturbing (fictional) character at his fateful Halloween party, and a car identical to his late father's; his stepdaughter's doll violently "malfunctions", and their house undergoes bizarre transformations. Connecting these aberrations to graver events - a series of grotesque murders, and the epidemic disappearance of young boys - Ellis struggles to defend his family even as his wife, their therapists, and the police insist that his apprehensions are rooted instead in substance abuse and egomania.
