James Ellroy on Re-Writing History

James Ellroy’s new crime fiction novel, Blood’s a Rover, takes you back to the tumultuous summer of 1968, to a world inhabited by J. Edgar Hoover, Howard Hughes, the Black Panthers, and the mob running their rackets in the Dominican Republic. Above, in his own inimitable style, Ellroy gives you the scoop on how he goes about writing historical fiction. To get a feel for the book, you can read a PDF of the first chapter here.
