This is a fascinating collection of interviews with the 'bad boy' of American crime fiction, conducted between 1984 to 2010. Born Lee Earle Ellroy in 1948, James Ellroy is one of the most critically acclaimed and controversial contemporary writers of crime and historical fiction. Ellroy's complex narratives, which merge history and fiction, have pushed the boundaries of the crime fiction genre: "American Tabloid", a revisionist look at the Kennedy era, was "Time" magazine's Novel of the Year 1995, and his novels "L.A. Confidential" and "The Black Dahlia" were adapted into films. In "Conversations with James Ellroy", Ellroy talks extensively about his life, his literary influences, his persona, and his attitudes towards politics and religion. In interviews with fellow crime writers Craig McDonald, David Peace, and others, including several previously unpublished interviews, Ellroy is at turns charismatic and eloquent, combative and enigmatic.Über den Autor:
