« Jean-Philippe Toussaint: Monsieur | Main | Jean-Philippe Toussaint: The Bathroom »

Some suggestions... I whole-heartedly recommend The Big Sleep, and I've enjoyed most of his short stories. While Cadillac Desert wasn't exclusively L.A.-focused, there were some really fascinating sections on the city's history and regional politics amidst all the other awesome stuff about the West. I read a couple from James Ellroy back in high school, but I can't remember clearly which ones, which I suppose isn't much of a recommendation. I have heard many good things about The Day of the Locust, but it has yet to make it off my to-read list and into my hands. And that's all I got.
