As a long time reader of Ellis, and the last books were not my favorites, I was a little bit worried about this new book, mostly I was afraid of being disappointed again. And finally, I was let very indifferent about the big part on gay «culture». Free UK p&p over £15, online orders only. I don't get all the talk and criticism and rage that were made about this book, the author gives is opinion, but there isn't nothing that provocation or anything shocking, I think that just reinforce his point that everybody get offended easily!! It’s also his finest piece of writing, but tell that to the mainstream media. To order a copy go to guardianbookshop.com or call 0330 333 6846. Shame, because he’s often witty and insightful; there’s palpable gaiety in the airing of some of his more subversive ideas; and the book contains much of what makes reading him pleasurable. Instead, and I am very happy to underline instead, I was really happy, mostly because it's a non fictional essay about the life of the author, of his political ideas and some other stuff about movies and literature, that were a real pleasure to read. I recently read a book by Jewish Gay conservative Milo and to him, BEE is the prime example of eighties liberals sw. Bret Easton Ellis's fiction books always had these bisexual, queer men who are mostly transgressive, and apparently 'cool' and they had nothing to do with coming out of the closets. He wants Democrats who are upset about Donald Trump’s election to get over their “hangover sis.”, He revisits several controversial takes he has offered in the past — how Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow is overrated because she’s “a very hot woman”; how GLAAD punishes anyone who doesn’t “fall in stride with their agenda” — but also issues a slew of Twitter-ready morsels specially tooled to outrage the angrytariat. To not live in the safety of my own little snow globe and be reassured by familiarity and surrounded by what made me comfortable and coddled me. 3,5/5. Here's my review for Gay City News: A semi-autobiographical diatribe about the culture of intolerance that exists in the present and how it impinges on our freedom of expression. Luckily Ellis is putting it under the spotlight. He writes at length on the hypersensitive reactions to his tweets, but it seems rather touchy to be complaining so much about one’s treatment on Twitter ... Mr. Ellis complains, rightly, that the cultural left elevates politics over art, but what conservative critic hasn’t said this in one form or another? I wanted to change my mind, about one thing and another, virtually anything. Like the aborted novel Ellis says he started making notes for in 2013. “White” is essentially a discursive, long-form op-ed, punctuated by details from the “American Psycho” author’s life that make it sound like one of his novels (drinks with Kanye, cocaine with Basquiat). Review A professional critic’s assessment of a service, product, performance, or artistic or literary work. And much of what he reveals is sensational and sad. Ellis’ wit is all but absent, his subtly non-existent, but his furor and hollow. He was a classical Liberal and probably believed in everything liberalism stood for, but now that he's so sick of his peers, he wants to switch sides and that has been harder than coming out as a queer. Let us know what’s wrong with this preview of, Published There’s no arc. There’s also something unconvincing and disingenuous in his incredulous response to “the overreaction epidemic.” How many times does it need to happen for him to learn? Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The most important news stories of the day, curated by Post editors and delivered every morning. I craved being shaken. Refresh and try again. while i don't necessarily agree with some of the things he says (king cobra being a good film) i do appreciate that he doesn't want to dictate how i should feel. Ellis wants us to be more resilient and less performative. But in the last couple of years both the right and the left wingers have become unbearably hateful and toxic. Pervasive and nearly impossible to root out.
