‘Call me dog’: My interviews with James Ellroy

On May 2nd, Steven Powell, editor of the crime fiction blog The Venetian Vase, will be talking about his book Conversations With James Ellroy, and his experiences meeting with the Demon Dog of crime fiction.

James Ellroy is one of the most critically acclaimed and controversial contemporary writers of crime and historical fiction: “American Tabloid”, a revisionist look at the Kennedy era, was Time magazine’s Novel of the Year 1995, and his novels L.A. Confidential and The Black Dahlia were adapted into films. In creating the book, Conversations with James Ellroy, Steven Powell interviewed Ellroy himself, and collected interviews from throughout Ellroy’s career, shedding light on the crime writer’s eccentricities.

When and where: 2 May, 2012, 1pm-2pm, at the Centre for Lifelong Learning, University of Liverpool.
