Review: American Tabloid by James Ellroy

November is presidential election month, so here are a few books about (or by presidents) to get you in the mood.

This one isn’t like my other recommendations – it’s a fictionalised account of JFK’s assassination, through a massive interconnected web of CIA agents, FBI agents, and Mafiosos. So not really about the president at all, but still…

Nobody does this kind of thing better than Ellroy (his latest, Perfidia is also worth reading). Fully recommended.
