Psychotic Food
Hello everyone,

My name is Davey. I've been a fan of American Psycho for several years now. A few months ago I finished my 3rd reading of the book, and afterwards decided to go through and highlight all the dishes ordered at the various restaurants by the characters. This list is fairly complete, but it excludes drinks, Patrick's breakfast foods and the various flavours of sorbet. It also doesn't cover some smaller orders, like the opening meal with sushi, the Christmas party, and when Patrick orders a burger in the kosher restaurant during his panic attack.

-monkfish and squid ceviche with golden caviar
-gravlax potpie with green tomatillo sauce
-tapas, venison with yogurt sauce and fiddlehead ferns with mango slices

-grilled salmon with raspberry vinegar and guacamole

-meat loaf with chevre and quail-stock sauce

Wow, i can't believe you did that!! They never eat any of it though ha ha. I love that book, I've just got Rules of attraction and Glamorama and i'm loking forward to reading those.
I wouldn't eat most of that stuff either, I mean, mud soup??!?!

Have you read Lunar Park? I haven't, and I want to get some feed back.
I've not read it yet no, I'm still playing catch up. Just got The Rules Of Attraction and Glamorama. There must be plenty of folk around here who have though I guess.
You'll like those books if you enjoyed Ellis's style of writing in American Psycho. Not as "pornographic" as AP in terms of violence and sex, but same writing.

...and Glamorama is like an Ellis book on steroids. It feels like two or three novels in one, once you actually go through it. You'll know what I mean when you finish.
