Rezensionen
Praise for James Ellroy:

One of the great American writers of our time.
Los Angeles Times

Ask me to name the best living novelist who s fierce, brave, funny, scatological, beautiful, convoluted, and paranoid . . . and it becomes simple: James Ellroy. If insanity illuminated by highly dangerous strokes of literary lightning is your thing, then Ellroy s your man.
Stephen King

James Ellroy is the American Dostoevsky.
Joyce Carol Oates
