Bret Easton Ellis
's new novel/memoir Lunar Park
is getting a lot of attention. I haven't read it yet, but I have been amused to peruse the famously fake websites
created to introduce some of the supposedly but questionably real characters in this book.
Since when does a major publishing firm like Random House do wacky stuff like this? It must be a new kind of world we are living in.
But if this fast-changing world leaves you yearning for the comfort of a familiar sarcastic voice from the past, here's an interview with Fran Lebowitz
. Fran hasn't written much since the days when Bret Easton Ellis was the new kid on the block, and it's good to hear from her again.
