James Ellroy's LA: A Man, his imaginary Police Dog, & Crime

I have been watching James Ellroy's LA: City of Demons on iTunes and am addicted to the man they call the Demon Dog. He has a vocabulary that could sink a ship. I am not even sure how he manages to turn out all the words he seamlessly utters. It seems like each has 15 letters. Add to this the fact that Ellroy invites along Barko the corrupt - and imaginary - police dog, and you have something very strange & addictive.

Check it out if you are a fan of his LA Quartet of novels, or if you are just looking for something sort of weird, but so watchable. Even if it is just to hear him talk. Because that is a performance in and of itself.
