Zócalo at the Hammer: James Ellroy

Tuesday Oct 20, 2009 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM This is a past program

James Ellroy—the author of the bestselling L.A. Quartet novels The Black Dahlia, The Big Nowhere, L.A. Confidential, and White Jazz—visits Zócalo to ballyhoo, consecrate and deconstruct his bestselling new novel, Blood’s a Rover, and to reflect on the nature of his historical fiction and the America it invents. Moderated by Helen Knode, author of the critically acclaimed The Ticket Out and former LA Weekly film critic and feature writer. She is also Ellroy’s ex-wife.
