Set in the era of 80’s excess, Psycho follows Patrick Bateman - a young high-powered business man who also happens to be a deranged serial murderer. This novel ignores plot and narrative structure in favor of aesthetics and social commentary. But does it rise above its own desire to shock and deliver something worthwhile? The answer will depend on your capacity for abyss staring.If you liked or didn't like this episode, let us know.Leave us a review and subscribe to this podcast!0:00 - Intro2:20 - Plot3:15 - Who is Patrick Bateman 4:30 - Why it’s banned6:50 - The importance of Phil Collins/music in the novel 9:50 - American Consumerism11:25 - Why this is a great satire 14:05 - What is this book trying to warn us about?21:08 - Did the book earn its violence?31:15 - Mid roll31:30 - Did the murders actually happen?34:40 - Jean & Evelyn 36:55 - is the novel misogynistic?38:52 - Cynicism/Nihilism in the novel 44:00 - Idolizing Psychos 46:36 - Final thoughts*GEAR* (affiliate links)Cameras: https://amzn.to/3bvmrIoRodecaster Pro: https://amzn.to/2XJcdR9Microphones: https://amzn.to/3kpkZLMHeadphones: https://amzn.to/2Wj3hBmBannedBookClubPodcast.comFollow us on Instagram: @bannedbookclubpodFollow us on Facebook: @bannedbookclubpodEmail us at firstname.lastname@example.orgSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/bannedbookclub)

Love: Rom-Coms Alex gets uncharacteristically sentimental this episode to talk up one of his favorite genres of film, the Romantic Comedy. After some history and some definitions, he talks at length about the versatility of the Rom-Com formula, the value of both diverting from and embracing a formula, and why you should all go watch Music and Lyrics immediately. Andy meanwhile extolls the value of the “Male friendship” variation, and everyone agrees that no one needs to see New Years Eve or Valentine’s Day. Hate: Bret Easton Ellis Andy takes his Hate time to list all the varied and awful ways that author, satirist, and edge-lord Bret Easton Ellis has wormed his way into the collective consciousness. He explains Ellis’s cavalier attitude towards everything from his own past to his sexuality to his treatment of women, and his terrible habit of trying to actively bait people on Twitter and defend Donald Trump. Alex, meanwhile, talks about Ellis’s friendship with fellow coke-addled over-writer, Jay McInerny and how Gen X cynicism hasn’t aged well, and everyone is reminded that American Psycho is a better movie than book. Relationship: Norah (from Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist) A question from Relationships.txt this episode sees the writer looking for help with her ex who is breaking into her apartment complex to do his laundry. Andy states the obvious of absolutely not at all engaging in any way whatsoever while Alex talks up the value of guilting one’s landlord if for no other reason than liability.
