James Ellroy | This Storm

Tue, June 4, 2019 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

In his bestselling L.A. Quartet mysteries and the Underworld USA trilogy, James Ellroy “has vigorously redefined the well-shadowed turf of contemporary crime fiction” (Atlanta Journal Constitution). He is also the author of the Lloyd Hopkins trilogy of novels, several collections of short stories and essays, and a memoir about his mother’s 1958 still-unsolved murder. In This Storm, the second installment in the Second L.A. Quartet, Ellroy hammers out a sordid story of corrupt cops, war profiteers, Japanese internment, and fascism during the darkest days of World War II.
