A disturbing portrayal of privileged and immoral LA teenagers, Less Than Zero is a cult classic.
In 1985, Bret Easton Ellis shocked, stunned and disturbed with his debut novel, Less Than Zero. Filled with relentless drinking in seamy bars and glamorous nightclubs, wild, drug-fuelled parties, and dispassionate sexual encounters, Less Than Zero – narrated by Clay, an eighteen-year-old student returning home to Los Angeles for Christmas – is a fierce coming-of-age story, justifiably celebrated for its unflinching depiction of hedonistic youth, its brutal portrayal of the inexorable consequences of such moral depravity, and its author's refusal to condone or chastise such behaviour.
