Famous quotes containing the words ellroy and/or james:

    The 1950s to me is darkness, hidden history, perversion behind most doors waiting to creep out. The 1950s to most people is kitsch and Mickey Mouse watches and all this intolerable stuff.
    —James Ellroy (b. 1948)

    To read between the lines was easier than to follow the text.
    —Henry James (1843–1916)
