>I'm one who loved White Jazz and American Tabloid
So it isn't just me? I am reading American Tabloid at the moment - slowly - and sort of like it quite a lot - if you see what I'm saying - but I am having awful problems with the style, particularly the dialogue.
  It feels like a foreign language with which I am only fairly familiar.
  I'd assumed it was because I've been in the UK for so long. Maybe not?

Does anybody have a must-read suggestion for the second Ellroy I try?
