Good evening peepers, prowlers, pederasts, panty-sniffers, punks and pimps. I'm James Ellroy, the demon dog, the foul owl with the death growl, the white knight of the far right, and the slick trick with the donkey dick. I'm the author of 16 books, masterpieces all; they precede all my future masterpieces. These books will leave you reamed, steamed and drycleaned, tie-dyed, swept to the side, true-blued, tattooed and bah fongooed. These are books for the whole fucking family, if the name of your family is Manson.
so yeah, working my way through the l.a. quartet and looking forward to tucking into the underworld usa books. split between white jazz and the black dahlia in terms of favourite, but la confidential is probably, objectively speaking, the best of the bunch. your faves?
