James Ellroy: ‘I Don’t View LA As Any Place Other Than My Stomping Grounds’

In part two of our discussion with novelist and TV host James Ellroy, we discuss what makes Los Angeles such a compelling city for stories about crime.

Ellroy is the creator and host of “James Ellroy’s LA: City of Demons” on Investigation Discovery.

“I come from LA, I was born on Wilshire boulevard in 1948, in the film noir epicenter during the film noir era. I don’t view LA as any place other than my stomping grounds,” Ellroy says. “This show reconciles all the paradoxes within me, and in an engaging, amusing and consistently non-solipsistic way.”

In Part I, we spoke to Ellroy about his new program on ID, including his animated co-host, the police dog Barko.

In Part III, which will run tomorrow on GalleyCat, Ellroy discusses his writing.
