Conversations with James Ellroy

Conversations with James Ellroy, edited by Steven Powell

I just learned of a new book of interviews with crime fiction great James Ellroy, edited by Steven Powell. That by itself would be a treat, but it also happens to feature a photograph I took of Ellroy at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books.

I always thought it was a revealing shot of Ellroy--he has a sort of half smirk in the photo that suits him--and I'm glad to see it featured on the cover.
