James Ellroy quotes :
I like to be alone so I can write. But focus can hurt you. I don't want to be some stress casualty in early middle age.James Ellroy
As much as I transferred my mother to Elizabeth Shore of The Black Dahlia, as much as her dad mutated into an obsession with crime in general, well, I have thought about other things throughout the years.James Ellroy
I am the most well-adjusted human being I know. I started out this investigation as a very happy man with a great career. I've got the life people dream about: I am rich, I am famous, I've got a fabulous marriage to an absolutely, spell-bindingly brilliant woman.James Ellroy
