    James Ellroy -- My Dark Places

  • Gia

    Non-fiction. Crime writer James Ellroy recounts the homicide of his mother in 1958 LA Co. El Monte and is life with his father after her death.

  • Smead .

    Even if you've never read Ellroy's crime novels (I haven't), give this memoir a try. A frakkin crazy life story that starts with the murder of his mother and at one point finds him doing massive amounts of drugs while living in a city park tree and practicing his peeping tom skills.
