Extra info for American Psycho
While loosening my Matisse-inspired blue silk tie from Bill Robinson I dial her number and walk across the apartment, cordless phone in hand, to flip on the air-conditioning. She answers on the third ring. " "Patricia. Hi. " "Oh hi," she says. "Listen, I'm on the other line. " "Well…," I say. "Look, it's my health club," she says. "They've screwed up my account. " "Yeah," I say and hang up.
