James Ellroy To Appear In Playboy

James Ellroy.jpgCrime novelist James Ellroy has written a four-part serial for Playboy Magazine entitled “The Hilliker Curse,” about his relationships with women. The first installment recently hit newsstands in the April issue. Scott Timberg writes in the LA Times:

“The Hilliker Curse” has the mix of hyped-up prose and rapid storytelling that readers expect from Ellroy’s novels, blended with a reflective quality he’s rarely shown in the past.

Whereas the first installment revisits his childhood, the unsolved murder and his teenage peeping, ensuing chapters look at how his mother’s death drove him to search for the perfect woman, to seek out both prostitutes and (fruitlessly) women of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, to pass notes with his phone number in coffee shops, to send literally thousands of dollars in flowers.

Now 61, he is, he says, in “an erotic frenzy.” (“James Ellroy: Why I Chase Women,” Playboy’s April cover boasts.)
