This raw, explicit memoir is as high-intensity and riveting as any of James Ellroy's novels. In the year 1958, when the author was ten-years-old, his mother gave him a choice: to live with the father she was divorcing, or her. He chose his father, wished her dead, and three months later, she was murdered. In THE HILLIKER CURSE, Ellory narrates his quest for 'atonement in women.' He unsparingly describes his shattered childhood, his delinquent teens, his writing life, his love affairs and marriages, a nervous breakdown and the beginning of a relationship with an extraordinary woman who may just be the long-sought HER. The memoir heaves with complex layers of emotion and insight, sexuality and spiritual quest. All the while, it is delivered with gut-wrenching and heart-rending candor.
