First hardcover edition. of a truly modern classic, American Psycho~i~ follows Wall Street macho and psychopath Patrick Bateman around New York City, and this dark, satirical tale illuminates a world we are all too familiar with but choose to turn a blind eye to. A multi-million copy bestseller, American Psycho continues to outrage with it's graphic violence and black comedy but, as Irivne Welsh remaks, "We are now a good way into the 21st century, and American Psycho remains literature’s most indispensable and savage exegesis of the society we have created".
