Hey does it seem like we write a lot about Bret Easton Ellis on this site?  Maybe we should change the website name to “Less Than Zero” and call it a day (I’m sure  some readers think that would actually be more appropriate).

What can we say?   We here at Mary were bottle fed on Bret’s consumertastic brand of minimalist nihilism.   Don’t bother complaining;  we are to busy doing eightballs and listening to the Go-Gos….

Above is the cover for Bret’s sequel to “Less than Zero.”    The novel is tilted “Imperial Bedrooms” and it is due out June 2010.

Press release states:

‘Twenty-five years have passed since the events chronicled in Less Than Zero, and Clay Easton, now a successful screenwriter, has returned from a brief stint in New York City to Los Angeles, where he’s helping to cast his newest movie, “The Listeners.” But the more things have changed, the more they stay the same, and Clay is soon drifting around in his familiar old circle. There’s his vulnerable former girlfriend, Blair, and her husband, Trent, now a high-powered agent but still a bisexual philanderer; and the parties they host at their Beverly Hills mansion are filled with Hollywood types of various levels of fame and fortune and power. There’s his childhood friend Julian, a recovering addict running an ultra-discreet, high-class escort service, and their old dealer Rip Millar, reconstructed and face-lifted nearly beyond recognition, who nowadays is involved in activities far more sinister than those of his notorious past.  But Clay has demons of his own, and they threaten to destroy him…’

I have a feeling this hollywood novel is not going to end like  “Valley of the Dolls.

But maybe it might be more like the ending of “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls”

Yes!…But do think Jami Gertz will be back if they do a movie sequel?
