By Bret Easton Ellis
It is 25 years since Bret Easton Ellis shocked the literary world with his disturbing first novel Less Than Zero. Since then he has gone on to develop a reputation as the author of somewhat gruesome but always gripping critiques of modern living, most notably with American Psycho. His latest book returns to the characters of his debut as they face up to middle age and the consequences of their dissolute youth.
Jeremy and Amy
By Jeremy Keeling
Jeremy Keeling met Amy when he was looking after a rock music producer's pets. One day he was driving with Amy, a one-year-old orang-utan, in the passenger seat when he fell asleep at the wheel. The first policeman on the scene crawled into the wreckage of the car, where he saw a hairy non-human hand cradling the driver's head. Jeremy was inspired by her devotion to set up a sanctuary for abused and abandoned primates. This book tells the story of the 20-year friendship between man and ape.
