Jonathan Gold & Bret Easton Ellis

Wednesday Nov 17, 2010 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM This is a past program

"…the high-low priest of the L.A. food scene…chefs read Gold, as do food nerds in their thirties who spend their weekends retracing his steps." —The New Yorker

"Over the course of six novels and one book of short stories, Bret Easton Ellis has put together one of the most entertaining, fascinating, and fucked-up bodies of work in contemporary literature." —Vice Magazine

Jonathan Gold, restaurant critic for LA Weekly and author of Counter Intelligence: Eating in the Real Los Angeles, is the only food writer to have been awarded the Pulitzer Prize. Bret Easton Ellis is the author of six novels including Less Than Zero, The Rules of Attraction, American Psycho, Glamorama, and Lunar Park, as well as a collection of short stories, The Informers. His latest novel is Imperial Bedrooms. Gold and Ellis share their fascination for Los Angeles, pop culture, and eating.
