La novela más infame de Bret Easton Ellis: un clásico contemporáneo que se ha convertido en símbolo de una generación. «La vida era como un lienzo en blanco, un cliché, un culebrón. Me sentía letal, al borde de la histeria. Mis ansias nocturnas de sangre inundaban también mis días y tuve que dejar la ciudad. Mi máscara de cordura amenazaba con desaparecer. Para mí era la estación más dura y necesitaba vacaciones.» El sofisticado, inteligente y vanidoso Patrick Bateman trabaja en Wall Street, idolatra al joven magnate Donald Trump, cena en los restaurantes de moda de Nueva York y es capaz de distinguir un traje Armani a cincuenta metros de distancia. También le gusta violar, torturar, asesinar y desmembrar. American Psycho, la novela más polémica de Bret Easton Ellis, se ha convertido en el reflejo más descarnado de la sociedad hipermaterialista de finales de los 80 y en una de las obras maestras de finales del siglo XX. Bret Easton Ellis lanza una crítica corrosiva hacia el egoísmo y la depravación del capitalismo exacerbado: un retrato desolador, irónico y rabiosamente vigente de un mundo al borde del colapso en el que todavía vivimos. Críticas: «American Psycho sigue siendo la exégesis literaria más indispensable y salvaje sobre la sociedad que hemos construido.» Irvine Welsh «American Psycho era y es y será una obra maestra de la literatura estadounidense del siglo XX [...] símbolo y metáfora y síntoma y paradigma [...] Con prosa y dicción que se las arregla para fundir lo mejor Ernest Hemingway y Joan Didion y HAL 9000.» Rodrigo Fresán «Un libro fundamental.» Fay Weldon, The Washington Post «Esto es seguro: esta novela se adelantó a su tiempo.» Dwight Garner, The New York Times «Seria, inteligente y rompedoramente efectiva [...] Es un retrato tremendamente coherente de una sociedad mortalmente adicta al aburrimiento, debería ser juzgada dentro de los más altos estándares.» Sunday Times «American Psycho es hilarante. Además de una pesadilla repulsiva, Patrick Bateman es una creación cómica de primer orden.» Sam Jordison, The Guardian «Hoy en día, American Psycho es una obra canónica de sátira social [...] la única y más condenatoria crítica de las consecuencias culturales del capitalismo contemporáneo» John Pa Rollert, Chicago Booth Review «Que los contenidos del libro son escandalosos es completamente indiscutible, pero de la misma manera que La hoguera de las vanidades expuso la corrupción y la avaricia resultantes de las políticas de los años ochenta y sus altos niveles de vida, American Psycho examina las preocupaciones irracionales de los pijos de los noventa.» Time Out «Un libro que abrasó a críticos, censores y lectores en general y que finalmente se convirtió en uno de los grandes clásicos de culto de la era moderna [...] Años después de su original y controvertida publicación, el poder del libro para escandalizar y repeler puede haber disminuido, pero su posición en el canon moderno está asegurada.» Literary Hub «El modelo de una generación de autores.» Le Monde

This book is moving around two intricately interwoven topics, the history of film studies and the failed scholarly reception (or perhaps just failed reception) of Brian De Palma's films, this book asks troubling, provocative questions not only about what and how De Palma's films mean in the cultural and scholarly imaginary, but about the causal relationship of politics to taste (in this sense it's a much needed updating of Bourdieu's work) and about a certain un-ease at the heart of

In the belief that people in ever-increasing numbers are turning to the media for their understanding of evil, this lively and provocative collection of essays addresses the changing representation of evil in a broad spectrum of films and television programmes. Written in refreshingly accessible and de-jargonised prose, the essays bring to bear a variety of philosophical and critical
