Bret Easton Ellis is an American author, screenwriter, and short story writer. His works have been translated into 27 languages.
He was at first regarded as one of the so-called literary Brat Pack, which also included Tama Janowitz and Jay McInerney.
He is a self-proclaimed satirist whose trademark technique, as a writer, is the expression of extreme acts and opinions in an affect less style. Ellis employs a technique of linking novels with common, recurring characters.
