New York Times Book Review:
Can you share a Christmas memory with us?
Brett Easton Ellis:
I went to the very back of my parents’ closet. Under some clothes and boxes I saw a bag. Wrapped inside the bag were two G.I. Joe men and an Etch-A-Sketch. Next Christmas, I went to the same spot in the closet. Under some clothes was a bag, and inside the bag were three boxes. The first box had a note in my dad’s handwriting that read “Nothing Here” and so did the rest of the boxes…I’ve had difficulty trusting people since.
Do you prefer living with female or male humans?
Well I was coming down off a ~2 hour catnip binge and I’d just laid down in a strip of sunlight on the bed. He came in holding a magazine with a female human on the cover. He laid down next to me. I thought of curling up on his ribs so I could fall asleep to the sound of his heartbeat, when he scooped me up and threw me on the floor. I looked back at him and watched him take something out of the nightstand. I stood there and blinked at him. He made a loud noise that freaked me out so I ran. That’s when I decided to become an artist.
Have you ever been in a fight?
Greg went to sit down and I pulled the chair from under him. He fell and I laughed the loudest out of the whole class. He dislocated his hip and chipped a tooth. After school, Greg walked up to me on the basketball court. He punched me in the eye. I knelt, cried, and then ran home. My mother called the cops. I transferred to a different school district. Later, when I was in high school, Greg transferred to my school district. He told everyone how he punched me in the eye and I cried and my mom called the cops. I looked him up on Facebook recently and his tooth is still chipped.
