Returning to Los Angeles from his Eastern college for a Christmas vacation in the early 1980s, Clay "reenters a landscape of limitless privilege and absolute moral entropy, where everyone drives Porsches, dines at Spago, and snorts mountains of cocaine ... A raw, powerful portrait of a lost generation."--Back cover, Vintage Contemporaries ed. (1998)
Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis( Book )

84 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in 15 languages and held by 1,961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Imagine becoming a best-selling novelist, and almost immediately famous and wealthy, while still in college, and before long seeing your insufferable father reduced to a bag of ashes in a safety-deposit box, while after American Psycho your celebrity drowns in a sea of vilification, booze, and drugs." "Then imagine having a second chance ten years later, as the Bret Easton Ellis of this remarkable novel is given, with a wife, children, and suburban sobriety - only to watch this new life shatter beyond recognition in a matter of days. At a fateful Halloween party he glimpses a disturbing (fictional) character driving a car identical to his late father's, his stepdaughter's doll violently "malfunctions," and their house undergoes bizarre transformations both within and without. Connecting these aberrations to graver events - a series of grotesque murders that no longer seem random and the epidemic disappearance of boys his son's age - Ellis struggles to defend his family against this escalating menace event as his wife, their therapists, and the police insist that his apprehensions are rooted instead in substance abuse and egomania." "Lunar Park confounds one expectation after another, passing through comedy and mounting horror, both psychological and supernatural, toward a resolution - about love and loss, fathers and sons."--Jacket
