'White' - Bret Easton Ellis
Bret Easton Ellis has enthralled before with 'Less Than Zero', 'Rules of Attraction', and 'American Psycho' but this book is quite different as it's set in reality and ponders how we've come to be at this place where there is authoritarian corporate control over emotions and you're supposed to express your approval or disdain over everything and anything in lockstep with the masses. Bret has ruffled a few feathers in the past, 'American Psycho' was banned for a while, although he's gay himself GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) banned him from attending their awards ceremony one year. He's a social commentator in this book and explains a lot of how millennials whom he calls "generation wuss" came to be as they are. He was seeing a millennial at the time of Trump's election, he has lived in the liberal elite bubbles of LA and New York and explains how Trump supporters out there are closeted due to how 'cancel culture' impacts EVERYTHING and just how high and mighty these coastal elites believe they are at one point an unnamed man at a dinner Bret is attending shouts that "Yes LA and New York should choose the President over some rural know nothing!".
It's been an interesting read.
