Fresh from a tiff with Matt Cooper, the dean of literary noir, James Ellroy, talks about the obsessions that have fuelled his life and work.
James Ellroy’s in pretty good mood for a man who not an hour ago terminated an interview with Today FM’s Matt Cooper because he didn’t like the line of questioning. With his six foot-three frame coiled into an armchair in the Westbury Hotel lounge, dressed in casual shirt, slacks and sneakers, the writer looks like he just strolled in off the golf course.
