RUM AND COKE—Bret Easton Ellis goes back to the well for his new novel Imperial Bedrooms, a sequel to his 1985 debut Less Than Zero. Clay and his friends are up to their same poor little rich kid tricks, except 25 years later, they're poor little rich middle-agers with movie deals and bigger mountains of coke and booze.
