Fine collection of early 80's stories from Ellis. I'm really glad that both a male and a female narrator were used to divide up the different chapters (each one is told in first person). Therese Plummer in particular, is a real talent.

Any additional comments?
I’m a big fan of Bret Easton Ellis’ work, generally. Lunar Park is just about one of my favorite novels. Glamorama is a hell of a lot of fun. Less Than Zero is OK and most of his other works have great moments.
The Informers has its moments, too. Particularly a vampire section. That’s about it. I’m not a fan of thing at all. The narrator on the audio is icky, too. The reader tries to convey a kind of disaffectedness that comes off as silly and like the guy doesn’t understand the kind of people he’s representing other than in terms of a middle school student.
Unless you’re a big fan of the kind of thing Ellis does, The Informers is likely going to be a waste of time for you. Like I said, the vampires section towards the end is the only really good part.
