Confidential James Ellroy  photoJames Ellroy, the “Demon Dog of American crime fiction,” the self-proclaimed “greatest crime novelist who ever lived” (“to the crime novel what Beethoven is to music!”) has a new one out, a memoir, The Hilliker Curse, exploring his own troubled past: his parents’ divorce, his mother’s murder, drug abuse, depression—a regular Thursday evening at Vroman’s, in other words. Ellroy is quite a character, and as far as we’re concerned L.A. Confidential gives him license to do or say just about anything.
