Re: RARA-AVIS: When will Ellroy's next book be out?
Thu, 4 Feb 1999 08:47:24 -0500 Ellroy has a new book out from Vintage Crime: CRIME WAVE. It collects his
non-fiction and fiction pieces from GQ magazine. Many of you have probably
read many of these before, but it's nice to have 'em all collected in a
single book.

Ellroy's take on the O.J. Simpson trial (written before the trial's
conclusion) is a marvelously scathing psychological and socialogical
dissection of the major players in the murder case. And his exploration of
an unsolved crime has a staccato Dragnet "just-the-facts-ma'am" style that
wraps up with a mythopoeic pop-psychology profile of the people involved
and the allure of Hollywood decadence.

I found it fun stuff to read during a recent bout of travel and delayed
flights. -- Duane
