Re: RARA-AVIS: Ellroy's L.A. Quartet

Besides the already mentioned Dick Contino's Blues, Ellroy's _Clandestine_ is a superb novel, perhaps even better (or better rounded) than the LA Quartet.

As to Brown's Requiem, it did not make me retch. In fact, I enjoyed it. It has a pulp feel to it, a brazenness that I found appealing. I haven't reread it, though. Maybe today I would find fault with it. Oh, and I also liked Suicide Hill, which has good characterization.
