Advance Notice. Imperial Bedrooms.

As this is a blog about all things L.A., you might imagine we're fans of Bret Easton Ellis' "Less Than Zero". His new book "Imperial Bedrooms", due for release on June 15, is a twenty-five years later look into the L.A. lives of Clay, Blair, and company.

In a great interview by Jesse Katz with Ellis in the June (Lunch Time!) issue of Los Angeles Magazine, Katz writes, "Text messages and internet videos have replaced pay phones and Betamaxes--Equinox instead of Nautilus, Koi in lieu of Chasen's, Reveal over the Roxy--but Clay is still navigating a terrifyingly soulless landscape of doctored flesh and leveraged couplings".

We can hardly wait. Based on Ellis' last book, "Lunar Park", I feel this could be one I won't be able to put down.
