I’d never read Joseph Wambaugh before, but a cover blurb from James Ellroy persuaded me to buy Hollywood Station. And it’s brilliant – like the best bits of NYPD Blue crammed into a single novel. Funny, too.

Read the choirboys. The source for the film that became the model for hill street blues. In equal parts funny, horrifying, and deeply depressing.
Got a copy of it somewhere in the house. I’d loan it too you if I ever saw you these days ;-)
I’ll track it down on Amazon or something :)
Bollloks, more to add to the list…
But, well worth it. Hollywood Station is indeed fab
The Choirboys was great too.
