RARA-AVIS: Ellroy, again

"If you have to subdivide me as novelist," says Ellroy, "I would say I'm a historical novelist. I think the four 'L.A. Quartet' books are so dense in period detail and historical subtext, that you can call me a historical novelist going back to 'The Black Dahlia' and then, most especially, with
'American Tabloid' and 'The Cold Six Thousand.' Those are historical novels on a grand scale."
