Tom Lutz handpicks four books a year and conducts an exclusive book club with LARB members. Books are shipped to your door in advance. The book club meeting is held on Facebook, and all members are sent an exclusive interview between Tom and the author, either by video or audio stream.

For the fifth installment of Tom's Book Club, Tom Lutz, founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Los Angeles Review of Books, has chosen James Ellroy's Perfidia (Knopf, September 2014). This epic, 700+ page novel by the "demon dog of American crime fiction" is an awe-inspiring vision of social, moral, and human chaos in wartime Los Angeles.
Thank you to all of our book club members who joined us live in person or via live stream with James Ellroy on December 6 at Emerson College Los Angeles! We'll announce our next book club selection at the beginning of the new year.
It is December 6, 1941. America stands at the brink of World War II. Last hopes for peace are shattered when Japanese squadrons bomb Pearl Harbor. Los Angeles has been a haven for loyal Japanese-Americans—but now, war fever and race hate grip the city and the Japanese internment begins.
