Review: James Ellroy's "My Dark Places"

Filed under: Clips   Tagged: , ,

If you liked The Black Dahlia, you’ll love (possibly) my review of James Ellroy’s My Dark Places, published in The Nation in 1996. This is my first attempt at uploading a PDF, which seems like an easier way of dealing with clips when I don’t have them in text form. Let’s try it! Hey, that’s handy—at least in this browser, it just comes right up on screen.

(Note from 2011: R.I.P. John Leonard, who assigned me that piece, and farewell to Elaine’s, where John took me to meet Ellroy. What a great memory that is.)
