Glamorama (Ellis, Bret Easton)(1999, paperback)

Regular price $6.00

A young man in what is recognisably fashion and celebrity obsessed New York is gradually, imperceptibly drawn into a shadowy looking-glass of that society and then finds himself trapped on the other side, in a much darker place, where fame and terrorism and family and politics are inextricably linked and sometimes indistinguishable. At once implicated and horror-stricken, his ways of escape blocked at every turn, he ultimately discovers - back on the other, familiar side - that there was no mirror, no escape, no world but this one,min which hotels implode and planes fall from the sky.
