Abstract

This comprehensive guide to James Ellroy’s work and life is arranged as an encyclopedia covering his entire career, from his first private-eye novel, Brown’s Requiem, to his 2012 e-book Shakedown. It introduces new readers to his characters and plots, and provides experienced Ellroy fans and scholars with detailed analyses of the themes, motifs, and stylistic innovations of his books. The work is a tour of Ellroy’s dark underworld, highlighting the controversies and unsettling questions that characterize his work, as well as assessing Ellroy’s place in the annals of American literature.
