The Black Dahlia

New York: Mysterious Press, 1987. UNCORRECTED PROOF, preceding the First Edition. Fine in peach trade softcover binding, with proof dust jacket, Near Fine. One of the scarcest Ellroy proofs. First book in the L.A. Quartet.

The earliest state of a modern classic, perhaps Ellroy's best work, and certainly the book that defined both his writing style and persona. Basis for the 2006 film directed by Brian DePalma and starring Josh Hartnett, Aaron Eckhart and Scarlett Johansson. In a custom clamshell box.
