One day after the release of his new novel, Perfidia, crime fiction writer James Ellroy (L.A. Confidential, The Black Dahlia) sits down in conversation with the founder and president of the Film Noir Foundation, author Eddie Muller, to chat about and sign copies of his latest, largest and most accessible work yet.
