James Ellroy in LA's Forth Magazine

The LA-based arts and literature magazine Forth has a profile of James Ellroy in their September/October issue featuring short excerpts of his forth-coming novel, Blood's a Rover.

Says Ellroy about his writing:
The basis of drama for me is entirely a man meets a woman. The man and woman are forced to quash or interdict. Some superstructure may be endemic as a means to substantiate their growing love. Generally, it’s a lonely haunted guy with self-serving motives. It’s my worst and most noble vision of myself.
