Bret Easton Ellis for the SS23 RE Issue 15.
Bret Easton Ellis is the ultimate literary rearranger. From re-arranging our perception of corporate reality, toxic masculinity in his vision of 80’s paranoia and Americana, his journey continues. In this interview he talks about revisiting and re-assessing in his artistic and personal life. Proof if ever needed that to create anew you sometimes need to recreate. The past is always with you.
“I never felt more in my life as I did when I was younger. My emotions were super high, especially in high school. I was constantly thinking about my desires, my sexuality, my passion for music. I would keep journals and write short stories about my days all the time. The numbness thing was more about an aesthetic. I was just coming of age in the time of minimalism.”
In conversation with novelist Alex Kazemi.
