First Tuesday - ABC TV

I'm not certain, but I'm pretty certain the delectable Ms Marieke Hardy will not pimp her appearance on the ABC's new book program First Tuesday Book Club on her own blog as... well, frankly, her blog is another persona. Of sorts.

So, I feel duty bound to talk it up ESPECIALLY AS IT FEATURES MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE BOOK as an opener. WHOA! SHOUTING! THOMASR!! Well, hell it's "American Psycho" and frankly it's the book that made me give up novel writing aspirations. (damn fury!

Brett Easton Ellis wrote the damn thing when he was but 25-ish and it's constructed like the most perfect piece of engineering you've ever seen. I return to this book annually- and have introduced many people to it. Of note, two of the people who did read it were almost complete "non-readers" (one admitted he hadn't read a book since high school. He read it in two days.)

So, if you haven't read it, don't be completely put off by the title. Ok, be slightly put off by the title. And strap yourself in.
