There are still people who believe in the future and have faith in life. They believe there is a future. The planet won't have collapsed within a year. We must be thankful to them. It is not possible to have our pre-apocalyptic fears eased by the gentle light of hope every day. Even though we haven’t yet opened any books from the next literary season, which is another kind of pre-apocalyptic anxiety, Robert Laffont editions are happy to announce "The Shards", an American novel by Bret Easton Ellis, will be released in spring 2023. It's May 20, 222. Everything is perfect.
Since "Suite(s), imperiale(s)," which was published in France in 2010, the author of "American Psycho", and "Less Than Zero," has not published a novel. The 2019 release of "White" was a success. This is a great event. It is an event, from the announcement to it being announced a year ahead... Also, we have information about the writer for which we were concerned. His twitter account sent alarming messages a year ago. His tweets were filled with alarming messages, including aggressive replies, messages published at odd hours and a fascination with cryptocurrency. It was believed that he had returned to his bad habits from his boom years when he ruled over American letters and New York nights with the Brat Pack (Jay McInerney Tama Janowitz, Mark Lindquist).
Todd Michael, her boyfriend and a singer with a secret career, took control of her twitter account. He was insulting subscribers and telling everyone everything. Particularly anything. He was using social media to promote "The Shards", and even suggested that he was searching for an assistant in France to help him edit the book.
Robert Laffont editions, which has published Bret Easton Ellis since 2000's "Glamorama", will finally publish "The Shards". He has spoken for years about the "99%" autobiographical novel. He even recorded a podcast about it. In which he recounted his writing process and the panic attacks that triggered.
The 1981 story of "The Shards", takes place. Bret (17) is finishing his last year at Buckley's private high school. A new student, Robert Mallory, arrives with a mysterious past. He is attractive and charismatic. The press release continued: "Bret’s obsession with Mallory seems only matched by his growing concern about the Trawler. A serial killer who seems increasingly close to Bret and his groups, threatening them in violent, grotesque and gruesome acts. What will the Trawler do? Robert Mallory: Who are they? Are 'The Shards" really bringing Bret Ellis back to his 'top form? It will take a year to find out (or January 2023 if you read the original).
