American Psycho * Bret Easton Ellis – 1991

Because I read Dexter recently, and it's the scariest month in the year, I decided to pick a book from my bookshelf which I've been avoiding for quite some time - an all-time American Classic, banned from the publisher for extreme violence and torture scenes - eventually allowed and then made into a movie.
