    Bret Easton Ellis. American Psycho. New York: Vintage Books A Division of Random House, Inc., [1991]. First edition. Octavo, pictorial wrappers. A fine copy.

    More Information: Published as a Vintage trade paperback original, after the Simon & Schuster edition was canceled. "Although consistent in tone with the author's mainstream novels LESS THAN ZERO (1985) and THE RULES OF ATTRACTION (1987), AMERICAN PSYCHO was criticized rabidly (and wrongly) for misogyny and it particular its violence, which is so cartoonishly overdone that it cannot be regarded as anything but black comedy. The novel is overkill in every sense of the word ..." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-122.
