Day 13 - Your favorite writer



Bret Easton Ellis

Close Runners Up: Hunter S. Thompson and Chuck Palahinuk

Anything this guy writes, I will read. He just came out with a new book last week and I sat up until 4 in the morning last Saturday finishing it. He certainly is not for everyone considering some of the subject matter he covers and some of the content of his books (ie: extensive drug use, graphic violence, graphic sex both in the gay and straight nature, and downright pornographic sex in one specific book), but he writes it all so well that I can't help but love it. He has a way with the language that I find amazing. There are so many critics that have stated that he is the Hemingway or Fitzgerald of the current generation, which is a compliment I would kill to get. If you want to just want to take a small peek into his world, check out the book The Informers. It is a grouping of short stories, my favorite one being about vampires that live in Los Angeles. Probably one of the best vampire stories I have ever read in my life.
