Bret Easton Ellis

The acclaimed author talks his first work of nonfiction

Watch Lauren Christensen, senior staff editor at The New York Times Book Review, in conversation with Bret Easton Ellis, the critically acclaimed author of “Less Than Zero” and “American Psycho.”

Hear Ellis discuss his first work of nonfiction “White,” described as an incendiary polemic about this young century’s failings, e-driven and otherwise, and at once an example, definition, and defense of what “freedom of speech” truly means. In White, Ellis eviscerates the perceived good that the social-media age has wrought, starting with the dangerous cult of likability.
