A rather telling interview with James Ellroy in The Onion A.V. Club. Most of the interview is focused on sense of place, morality, America’s obsession with murder, etc. But it all kind of unwinds at the end in a rather ugly way with Ellroy espousing his very non-liberal views:

I’ll admit, in some ways, even though I’m 56 years old, and dare I say a great artist and a wonderful human being and all that, and reasonably sensitive, there’s just some part of me that’s immature, that likes fucking over people and pissing them off.
