  2. Adams, Ariel. "Bret Easton Ellis Interview". Ask Men. Early on Ernest Hemingway had a lot of influence on me. Joan Didion and Raymond Carver also had a lot of influence on me. But I like lots of writers... I like Robert Ludlum, Stephen King, Philip Roth, Don DeLillo, and the romantic life of Jack Kerouac, even though I am not interesting in his fiction -- but I liked his life.

I read Underworld around that time, and was deeply impressed by it, which led me to Mao II, and Americana, which is where the epigraph is from—but I don’t think there’s a deeper link between our writing. DeLillo is more of an ideas man than me—than just about any novelist I know, for that matter.
