"The Godfather of Crime Fiction" James Ellroy Named GQ’s Writer of the Year

James Ellroy, the prolific author known for the blockbuster novels L.A. Confidential and The Black Dahlia, released his fourteenth book this year. This Storm tells the story of war fever and racial hatred brewing in 1940’s America. 

“There are crime writers and then there is James Ellroy,” writes the GQ profile on the revered author, who released This Storm (the anticipated sequel to Perfidia) to wide acclaim and bestseller status earlier this year. The magazine has dubbed Ellroy the “Writer of the Year,” an honor that the literary icon—now in his fourth decade of writing—firmly deserves.
