In this week’s books podcast I’m joined by Bret Easton Ellis. The author of Less Than Zero, American Psycho and Imperial Bedrooms is here to talk about his first nonfiction book White, and the savage critical response to it. We discuss censorious millennials, the fascination of actors, his problem with David Foster Wallace, ‘coming out’ as Patrick Bateman – and his own personal Ed Balls Day, when he posted what he thought was a text message ordering drugs to Twitter.
