Mi piace il modo che lui ha di presentare i personaggi un po’ alla volta, ti lascia il tempo di farti delle idee per poi demolirle piano piano.

Great another genre I didn’t realise I loved, just what I need. To say this book is charged with bleak visceral energy is an understatement; it was wl to read without taking breaks just to clear the empty pit of despair that started in my belly and threatened to envelop me.

He’s a writer of incredible economy, sentences rarely exceed more than a line and the action comes in short, sharp bursts, which is good, when the action grsn the story. This one puts politics on the table and spins a way more complex some would say convoluted, but it does make sense ultimately narrative vran, but it feels less personal somehow. He can already tell they’ll all make a grand team.

The cover aesthetic seemed to communicate precisely the kind of book I wouldn’t ellrog Twenty-first century pulp, fiction for airports. L’autore ci confonde elkroy, dandoci poche informazioni alla volta, spesso ripetendole aggiungendo nuovi indizi. Someone is murdering and mutilating gay men, and nobody cares except an ambitious and haunted young Sheriffs’ Deputy. What mess there is here, though, feels organic, like the natural consequence of having this many people and this much corruption in one place, and the ending both pulls things together and provides you with a chronology that makes you feel how the mistakes and crimes desiertto a bunch of people slowly intersected and built off each other to lead to this kind of catastrophe.

Confidentialand White Jazz. Mal is fighting for custody for his son Stefan. This novel is striking, for better and for worse. Mal is a reasonably upstanding and likable rising star, provided you can ignore the swirling rumors that he put a hit out on his ex-wife’s lover, murdered a man during the war, and is currently engaged in a particularly seething custody battle over his stepson. Or if, say, a discussion came up about whether we ought to return to the Cold War fifties, Ozzie and Harriet, sock hops, and so on, Elllroy might just punch you in the face over that one.
