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. Los Angeles Times Book Review called Ellroy "one of the great American writers of our time." Unfolding in Los Angeles over 23 days in December of 1941, Perfidia opens as the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor, the U.S. teeters on the edge of war and the roundup of allegedly treasonous Japanese Americans is about to begin. When a Japanese family is found dead, an investigation is launched that draws four people into a totally Ellroy-ian tangle: a Japanese-American forensic chemist, an adventurous young woman, a police officer based in fact (William H. Parker, who later became chief of the LAPD) and Dudley Smith, arch villain of The Big Nowhere, L.A. Confidential and White Jazz. Learn More
