Less Than Zero author Brett Easton Ellis is working on a new novel, but he doesn’t want anyone to care about it.
In an interview with Vice, he confirmed that he is working on a book saying, “I wish it wasn’t important to people that I am.” In the interview, he explained why he is working on the project:
I had a bit of a breakdown in January of 2013. I did more writing in 2012 than I’d ever done in my life—a series of movies, two of which got made, and countless television pilots. By January of 2013 I was exhausted. I found myself hungry to write prose, so I started working on this book. Every now and then it comes alive and I work on it until I get distracted by something else. It’s on my desk, along with a play that I’m writing.
Ellis did not indicate when the book might be coming out, and Random House, the publisher of his last book does not have any hints of a project on their website.
