Summary
"Often more disturbing than entertaining, James Ellroy is an author who never shies away from the ugly or repellent. Peter Wolfe examines how Ellroy transcends the genres of pulp and neo-noir fiction to write stories that are both psychologically haunting and culturally relevant. Wolfe skillfully combines biography - including the unsolved murder of Ellroy's mother - with literary analysis to provide a fascinating and readable study of this popular author. The first in-depth companion to the work of James Ellroy, Like Hot Knives to the Brain will interest students of popular culture, mystery readers, and crime buffs everywhere."--BOOK JACKET
