The Informers

Ellis, Bret Easton

| 1994

Flag from en


Dirk sees his best friend killed in a desert car wreck, then rifles through his pockets for a last joint before the ambulance comes. Cheryl, a wannabe newscaster, chides her future stepdaughter, 'You're tan but you don't look happy'. Jamie is a clubland carnivore with a taste for human blood. The characters go to the same schools and eat at the same restaurants. Their voices enfold us as seamlessly as those of DJs heard over a car radio. They have sex with the same boys and girls and buy from the same dealers. In short, they are connected in the only way people can be in L.A. - suffering from nothing less than the death of the soul.

Hade älskat boken om jag hade läst den när den kom ut. Uppenbarligen en stor inspirationskälla för Per Hagmans 90-talsalster. Nu lämnar den mig ganska trött och oberörd, förutom en grafisk våldsscen som var riktigt ruggig.
