About the Author

James Ellroy was born in Los Angeles in 1948. His L.A. Quartet novels-The Black Dahlia, The Big Nowhere, L.A. Confidential, and White Jazz-were international bestsellers. American Tabloid was Time's Novel of the Year for 1995; his memoir My Dark Places was a Time Best Book of the Year and a New York Times Notable Book for 1996; his most recent novel, The Cold Six Thousand, was a New York Times Notable Book and a Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year for 2001. He lives on the California coast.


"A brilliant detective and a mysterious psychopath come together in a final dance of death." --The New York Times"One of the great American writers of our time." -- Los Angeles Times "Ellroy is either our greatest obsessive writer or our most obsessive great writer. Either way, he is turning the crime novel's mean streets into superhighways." --Financial Times "Nobody in this generation matches the breadth and depth of James Ellroy's way with noir." -- Detroit News"A blood poet who writes as chain saws crank, Ellry has vigorously redefined the well-shadowed turf of contemporary crime fiction." --The Atlanta Journal-Constitution"His spare noir style . . . hits like a cleaver but . . . is honed like a scapel." --Chicago Tribune"Ellroy's characters are drawn with a firm brush, he has an excellent line in flinty, sardonic dialogue, and you terribly want to know how the whole thing is going to work out in the end." --The New York Times"Our best living mystery writer. . . . Literate, suspenseful, honest. . . . His pages crackle with maniac energy. . . . Ellroy captures the vocabulary, the rituals, the smells and rhythms and colors of real people living on the edge. . . . Nobody since Chandler has evoked so perfectly the seamy side of LA." --Austin Chronicle"Bold, electrifying. . . . Ellroy strips prose to its raw, gleaming bone. . . . James Ellroy is an American original, a sophisticated primitive as smooth as the snick-snick! of a pump shotgun and as subtle as the inevitable blast." --The San Diego Union-Tribune"Ellroy's writing is powerful . . . his pacing relentless . . . his characters real. He is a major talent." --Miami Herald"More than any other contemporary author, Ellroy gets inside the skull of the sadistic psychopath. . . . A true original." --Jonathan Kellerman
