I am traveling to Los Angeles on Tuesday for a television interview on a new program being produced for the Discovery Channel. The title of the program is James Ellroy's Los Angeles. As you may know, Ellroy is the bestselling author of L. A. Confidential as well as a number of other crime novels. Mr. Ellroy will be interviewing me about my book, My Father Was a Gangster: the Jim Vaus Story, and my father's involvement in organized crime in the late 1940s.
