Hi Bret,

I met you at an event in a London bookstore around the time you released Imperial Bedrooms. If I remember rightly, I gave you a copy of my dissertation which analysed the interplay between homosocial and homosexual relationships in stuff like Fight Club, American Psycho and Dennis Cooper's Frisk.

Did you ever read it?

Scratch that, my actual question: how do you feel about critics and the like looking so deeply into your work? For example, the idea that the entirety of American Psycho is made up because of an inconsistency about a tie. Does the fact that, especially as you write more and more, people are obsessively examining every little detail of your novels, change the way you write them at all?

Thanks, and hoping to see another book from you soon.
