Kennedys- Plus
Debauchery- Plus
Casual Racism- Minus
Conspiracy Theories- Plus
Extreme Violence- Plus
Moral Subtext- Ehhh.

Great book. Ellory is becoming one of my favorites. Basically and interwoven story involving mafia hitman, Jack and Bobby Kennedy, 2 wayward FBI agents, Howard Hughes, and Jimmy Hoffa. Castro fits in there somewhere. It's a quick read, with very few chapters over 10 pages. The action stays consistent throughout.

Karen Holden Hi there Julius! - Would you like to put a question to James Ellroy himself about American Tabloid? BBC World Book Club is interviewing him next Tuesday 3rd November and would love to hear from you. If you could email me at karen.holden@bbc.co.uk as soon as you can with your question about the book (anything - doesn't have to be particularly clever!), we can either arrange for you to talk to the man himself, or have our presenter put your question to Mr Ellroy for you. Then you get to hear your question on World Service Radio. Please get in touch soonest!
All best Karen Holden, Producer, BBC World Book Club
