Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. 185 pages. Published in 2009. Rare James Ellroy collectible item. A pristine copy of the Fall 2009 (Volume 190) Paris Review Interview Issue. Presents the most in-depth Interview with the great writer at the height of his fame and influence, which continues to this day. Appears in published form for the very time and has not been collected in book form. Celebrated for its brilliance and tenacity as one of the world's greatest literary publications, The Paris Review is perhaps the most influential and most important of its kind. The Paris Review is best-known for its Author Interviews, which are indispensable to an understanding and appreciation of 20th-century and contemporary literature. But the magazine has also published fiction and essays of the highest quality. "I'm a God in Europe, the dominant American writer of our time. America is the cultural top of the world, and my books are viewed in Europe as realistic critiques of America, at least by those Europeans who worship and loathe America equally, wish they were Americans, and wonder why they're not the height of culture for the entire world. I sell more books in France than in America" (James Ellroy). While this may sound like yet another Ellroy exaggerated boast, it is a fact that James Ellroy, a mega-bestseller writer in America, is even more successful - and taken very seriously in a way that John Grisham and John Irving are not - in France, and sells very well indeed in the rest of Europe, which worships him as a god (but maybe not God). An absolute "must-have" title for James Ellroy collectors. This title is a classic Issue. This is one of very few copies still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the finest living American writers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JAMES ELLROY TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 19338
