In a rare London appearance, author and screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis will discuss his latest exploration of the darker edges of American culture in his novel, The Shards.
Known for his ability to deftly blend satire and social commentary, Bret has built a reputation for capturing, chronicling – and sometimes ridiculing – pop culture, masculinity and nostalgia.
The Shards, his first novel in 13 years, is a 'fictional autobiography', following 17-year-old Bret and his high school friends in 1980s Los Angeles. As a serial killer starts targeting teens across the city, Bret's paranoia and obsession grow.
Bret has published nine books and since 2013 has hosted a podcast interviewing guests about film, television, music and literature.
