James Ellroy

When: Wed., Sept. 22, 7 p.m. 2010

Just a boy when his mother, Jean Hilliker, was murdered, thriller author James Ellroy believed that he had caused her death by having cursed her after a fight. At Books Inc. (1760 Fourth St., Berkeley) on Wednesday, Sept. 22, Ellroy reads his memoir The Hilliker Curse: My Pursuit of Women. It's not about his sexual conquests, but about his urge to cherish women and protect them from misogynists. 7 p.m., free. BooksInc.net
