        American Psycho: A Novel

      London: Picador, 1998 First British hardcover edition, first printing. Signed by Ellis on the title page. Publisher's black cloth, spine lettered in metallic silver; in the original pictorial red dust jacket, with an illustration of a masked businessman to the front panel, lettered in white and black. Near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, a hint of minor soiling to the front board, bright and fresh interior; unclipped dust jacket, with a hint of wear to the extremities, bright and unfaded spine, a few faint hints of light soiling to the rear panel, else fine. Overall, a tight and attractive copy. This copy of American Pyscho was inscribed by Ellis to former owner Joe Pacheco on August 17, 2005, at the Barnes and Noble at the north side of Union Square during his promotional tour for Lunar Park, which was first published earlier that month. A controversial novel even prior to its publication, American Psycho tells the story of Patrick Bateman, successful Wall Street businessman and sociopathic serial killer. The novel is narrated by the emotionless Bateman, who describes designer clothing and cannibalism with equal nonchalance, and quickly proves himself to be an unreliable narrator, warping the reader's understanding of whether the events of the novel actually occurred as they are being relayed. Originally set to be published by Simon and Schuster, an initial controversy sparked at the novel's detailed descriptions of Bateman's brutality against women and segments of these scenes were leaked to multiple magazines, prompting Simon and Schuster to cancel the novel's publication. Vintage, a division of Random House, picked up the book and published the first American edition in 1991, with Picador publishing the first British paperback edition later the same year. Interestingly, this first British hardcover edition precedes the first American hardcover, which was published by the Centipede Press in 2012. In 2002, American Psycho was adapted into a film of the same name starring Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman.. Signed by Author. 1st English Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

CONDITION: Fine in Near Fine dust jacket (small crease along lower front edge). [Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).] From the publisher: "Tram stations, ski runs and panoramic terraces - the Alps are a playground for winter sports fans and enthusiastic mountain climbers: a populated Alpine leisure park. In his tableaus from close-up photos Walter Niedermayr documents the effects of Alpine tourism on the mountain world. But his pictures on the 'injuries' to the landscape are by no means pure photographic depictions of reality; he works in a subtle way with minimal changes of angle and viewpoint, and uses scarcely perceptible alterations to combine individual pictures into disturbing photo arrangements, achieving an intensity of seeing. At the same time, Niedermayr's artistic, photographic eye captures the traces of the Alpine leisure industry as aesthetic signs and lines in the landscape. The moments of tension in his photos emerge not least from the individualistic ambivalence between the beautiful appearance of the composition and the knowledge of the vulnerability of the mountain world and the ecological danger it faces. Momentary Resorts [was] created during three years of research in the Alpine region." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
