MrT says: Does anyone remember Ellroy's Suicide Hill? I recall there was a picturesque biker in that one. A fun hardboiled novel.


i haven't read that one, but there are a couple amusing motorcycle books out there. hunter thompson, of course, wrote about hell's angels. and sonny barger, the angel's frisco prez, has written a book, too. reading these two books, you can get two dif- ferent accounts of thompson getting his butt kicked by them. one of the few times i would have sided with thompson... in spirit, at least. ;-)

sonny also writes about the deaths at altamont (?) when the stones were playing.
