Jarod Kintz
“I am the world’s greatest American. I narrowly beat out all of China for the title.”
Jarod Kintz, This is the best book I've ever written, and it still sucks

Bret Easton Ellis
“I felt lethal, on the verge of frenzy. My nightly bloodlust overflowed into my days and I had to leave the city. My mask of sanity was a victim of impending slippage. This was the bone season for me and I needed a vacation.”
Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho
