Quote of the Day: A word from original AMERICAN PSYCHO author Bret Easton Ellis...

"...there is an idea of a Patrick Bateman, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me, only an entity, something illusory, and though I can hide my cold gaze and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable: I simply am not there."
-- Bret Easton Ellis,
American Psycho (via Goodreads)
