* OldShame: Averted-- his first published novel, ''Literature/LessThanZero'', was a success. Ellis later said that it's "pretty good writing for someone who was 19".

Added DiffLines:

* OneHourWorkWeek: Main characters in his stories are often described as holding some kind of occupation or important responsibility but never seen engaging in anything related to that activity. For instance, all the main characters in ''Literature/TheRulesOfAttraction'' are college students living on campus in the middle a school semester, but no one apparently attends any courses; many main characters in ''Literature/AmericanPsycho'' have cushy office jobs on Wall Street but don't seem to do any kind of business work.

Added DiffLines:

* PopularIsDumb: Both perspective and secondary characters in his novels tend to be well connected and have wide social circles... and be shown in dialogue and narration to be offensively, scarily illiterate about anything going on in the real world (usually PlayedForLaughs).
