A bestseller at 21 with Less Than Zero and author of the blockbuster American Psycho before he was 30, Ellis has lately considered the novel to be a “fake enclave” and “a form that didn’t interest me any more”. American Psycho, his portrait of a banker as serial killer (if that’s what he really is: Patrick Bateman is an unreliable narrator) arrived at the peak of the appetite for transgressive fiction. Notably, both novels catalogue the minutiae of high-end Manhattan lifestyles, which readers have craved since the days of Edith Wharton.
Facebook had "unintentionally uploaded" email contacts of 1.5 million new users since March 2016, Reuters reported late Wednesday, citing company confirmation in its report. New users of the social media site were being asked to verify accounts with their email passwords, a process that in some cases uploaded those users' email contacts to Facebook, the company told Reuters in a statement. "These contacts were not shared with anyone and we are deleting them," the company told Reuters. Facebook has dropped the email password verification requirement.

FB shares are slightly lower in Thursday pre-market action. They're up more than 36% year to date.
