Summary
"This book addresses the voyeuristic dimensions of James Ellroy's fiction, one of the most significant yet underexplored areas of his work. Focusing exclusively on The L.A. Quartet and The Underworld U.S.A. Trilogy, it critically reflects upon a vivid preoccupation with eyes, visual culture, and visual technologies that permeates Ellroy's writings" --
