Feature - James Ellroy: Through the Glass, Darkly
Stuart Franklin
Stuart Franklin profiles the writer James Ellroy as part of an ongoing project on the importance of place in literature. The crime writer's world can be condensed into two obsessions: pursuing the phantom traces of his murdered red-haired mother, and building a virtuoso literary career on the foundations of a shattered childhood. Franklin traces the places of Ellroy's personal history in Los Angeles including his childhood home and the location of his mother's murder.
