Read full description of the books:
Like most stellar first novels, this one has that autobiographic vibe that perhaps the writer's future novels will only bravely hint at. This one is a coming out story, basically. The protagonist is gay, bi, experimenting. There are overly-masculine (gay) symbols throughout which obviously take no great psychoanalyst to pry open: mysterious men in motorbikes, gangsters, gaming, the faraway suburbs seeming faraway dreams that'll never be. The world so fully inhabited by BRET EASTON ELLIS is likewise the playing field in "The Mysteries of Pittsburgh," though in this case the end of college (and not high school, or during college, like in Ellis) is marked by booze, drugs, sex... like, ya know, uber-bohemian proclivities.
Yes, this one is better than "Less Than Zero", another effort at displaying the antics of 20-25 year olds still shaping out lives, but not as masterful as "The Rules of Attraction", where indeed no character WAS attractive, but the overall ambivalence was.
