Godhead of modern American prose. Shot to fame in 1985 when his first novel, Less Than Zero, was published while he was still in college. The controversy surrounding his 1991 novel American Psycho brought him considerable attention, some wanted but most of it unwanted. His novels are characterized by their social satire, pervasive drug use (mostly cocaine), and the casual bisexuality of the characters. Other novels: The Rules of Attraction, Glamorama, and Lunar Park. Also published a collection of short stories, The Informers.
