I can write an epic in which the assassination is only one crime in a long series of crimes. I can write a novel of collusion about the unsung leg breakers of history.

I can do a tabloid sewer crawl through the private nighmares of public policy. The first in a trilogy still to be published, it explores the way Kennedy gained access to power and the way those who facilitated his ascent also precipitated his fall. He also makes money on the side as an independent hitman for the mob and on divorce cases shakedowns.

Kemper Boyd, a Southern lawyer from a no longer prominent family. The output of each sequence is thus recycled in the system as fresh input; the outcome of one action is the starting point of the next, which creates a feedback loop according to a retroactive logic. How come the hors texte is also spiraled up by a feedback loop?

The difference between the two is essentially one of scale. Compartmentalization is evidence of the agency of some kind of mastermind and indicates the presence of a superior perspective. Another difference with conspiracy is that openness, ie interdependency, is a factor of efficiency, as opposed to what takes place with compartmentalization.

In American Tabloid heterogeneous systems thus come into contact; but they do not pursue exactly the same ends, which creates turbulence.

Collusion breeds collision. To locate the books, he must rely on one or several informants. The chase for and exploitation of informants will provide the first pattern of period doubling, generating turbulence. The overall structure is marked by bifurcation and duplication. As bifurcation occurs faster and faster, it creates turbulence and the system turns chaotic: the trajectories of the system become erratic and peridiodicity indicated, as said above, by the return to the attractor eventually gives way to apparent randomness.

Such a complex pattern results in unpredictable trajectories drawing back towards Littell, the point of origin. Chaos works. The Mafia quickly understands that cooperation with CIA is good business, with Cuba as their common cause. Third, collusion will become even tighter with the heroin trade.

Quasiperiodicity occurs with the coupling together of several incommensurate ie with a ratio that is not exact periodic systems.

American Tabloid exploits quasiperiodicity to the full with its multifold collusion of systems the Mafia, the CIA that do not pursue exactly the same ends. The two cycles will almost, but not quite, pull forces, and the new resulting cycle will almost, but not quite, repeat itself.

American Tabloid: A Novel

But the essential point is that, interestingly enough, quasiperiodicity is temporary: soon enough the new composed order drifts away from the orbit.

Just like period-doubling above, quasiperiodicity is but a passage to chaos, it is transitional. Santo will let them live and keep the stolen heroin if, in exchange, they kill Kennedy. Littell is to forward the tape to Bobby to humble him into stopping the assassination investigation after the deed is done. It centers if one can use the term on the actions of three men the activities of whom are already numerous at the beginning of the narrative:.

Now, as in any dynamic system, period doubling generates instability: As bifurcation occurs faster and faster, it creates turbulence and the system turns chaotic: Such a complex pattern results in unpredictable trajectories drawing back towards Littell, the point of origin. Chaos works.

The Mafia quickly understands that cooperation with CIA is good business, with Cuba as their common cause. Third, collusion will become even tighter with the heroin trade. Quasiperiodicity occurs with the coupling together of several incommensurate ie with a ratio that is not exact periodic systems.

American Tabloid exploits quasiperiodicity to the full with its multifold collusion of systems the Mafia, the CIA that do not pursue exactly the same ends. The two cycles will almost, but not quite, pull forces, and the new resulting cycle will almost, but not quite, repeat itself.

But the essential point is that, interestingly enough, quasiperiodicity is temporary: Just like period-doubling above, quasiperiodicity is but a passage to chaos, it is transitional. The drug subplot ties in with the assassination on multiple levels: The Mafia will also get involved in an active, positive way when they hear that Kennedy cut a deal with Castro, promising never to invade the island again which means the mob will never recover their casinos , but this involvement comes with a twist: Santo will let them live and keep the stolen heroin if, in exchange, they kill Kennedy.

Littell is to forward the tape to Bobby to humble him into stopping the assassination investigation after the deed is done. When Bobby Kennedy raids anti-Castro groups, Hoover never warned his allies against the action precisely to fuel hatred against Bobby. There is a paradoxical balance between the unpredictability of the individual trajectories ex: Kemper is killed by his former friend Littell for stealing the heroin, while Pete, guilty of the same crime, is spared by the Mafia and the overall consistency of the system there will be a Kennedy assassination no matter what.

Seen from above, from the point of view of the conspiracy-turned-chaotic system, tiny departures from the well-planned trajectory of the original plan do not alter its overall geometry after all.

Everything partakes of history.

In American Tabloid , mingling fiction with history, Ellroy exploits little causes having portentous effects a well-known, if by no means exclusive, property of a chaotic order. The smart bet: Not so smart, but sexy: Smear him and put Jack in the White House. Conspiracy as such is thus by definition a highly unstable system.

A second irony can be found in the fact that this so-called disorder is in fact order, if seen from a wider prespective. The system might display individually centrifugal trajectories, the overall movement is definitely centripetal.

Turbulence is disorder only on the surface, when seen from a limited perspective. The failure of a local conspiracy might well be what ensures the success of a super conspiracy, as the novel shows it with its mise en abyme of conspiracies.

We hold our man hostage at the office on the parade route. Our two legitimate shooters fire from separate roof perches in the rear and kill him.

But as it happens, the Mafia is not a homogeneous group. Giancana and Santo Trafficante however overrule him:But as we all know, the system as a whole will follow its course and Kennedy will be killed nevertheless. May 25, F.

Whoa, Ellroy's done it again: They talk the same, they think the same, they all stumble through the plot in the same way: I definitely "liked" Ward at the beginning in the sense that you gravitate towards the least dangerous-looking person in a threatening environment The title is This Storm.

The action of the book is completely sequential. Kemper Boyd, a Southern lawyer from a no longer prominent family. Another difference with conspiracy is that openness, ie interdependency, is a factor of efficiency, as opposed to what takes place with compartmentalization.

The writing style is so jarring, and there is so much story here it felt like pages crammed into , and some parts just didn't as interesting me.
