About This Item

Lakewood, CO: Centipede Press, 2012. First US hardcover edition First printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Number 85 of 200 numbered copies signed on the colophon by Ellis, John Langon who wrote the introduction and by Ben Baldwin who did the art work. "American Psycho remains one of the most notorious horror novels ever published. Originally slated for publication by Simon and Schuster, the hardcover edition was cancelled and the novel was published in trade paperback by Vintage. The novel met immediately with attacks and condemnation, but was simultaneously praised by some of the brightest literary lights. This edition features a fine new introduction by John Langan and a lengthy interview with Bret Easton Ellis. This is the first American hardcover edition of this novel ever published."
