“American Psycho” author Bret Easton Ellis reflects on how his classic novel applies today, how people relate to stories about being “trapped in a society they don’t believe in,” and why people can relate to art about even very unsavory characters. Ellis also discusses a wider backlash to art across the spectrum, which he thinks stems from people's superficial inability to appreciate metaphor, in this interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber. Aired on 2/1/2021.
