This new book takes her heroine, Lauren, an art curator at the National Aboriginal Gallery in Canberra, to a working stint in New York where she feels like shes living in a Sex And The City episode. Its a funny cultureclash tale about a wide-eyed Koori woman who has left behind her mob, her man, and taken on Manhattan. THE RICH MAN Charles Stewart (Storyboard, $27.95) WEST Australian journalist Charles Stewart set out to unravel his fathers life and unwittingly stumbled across the best story of his career. This book is his memoir about searching for the truth about an enigmatic man he never knew. What he discovered reads more like a Hollywood script than a family history. Stewarts account of unearthing the amazing truth about his father makes for a fascinating story. MAESTRO ON MISSION: James Ellroy delivers his customary staccato prose in the last volume of his Underworld USA trilogy Conspiracies thrive in burst of crime jive This fictional versionof recent American history is so over the top you will enjoy believing it By LOU ROBSON F EBRUARY 24, 1964. Five masked robbers hold up a security truck in a black neighbourhood in Los Angeles. Minutes later two of the robbers are killed, two escape and one is left for dead. Go forward a few years and black folk in need start getting emeralds in the mail. The jewels mystery is crucial to the plot of James Ellroys novel Bloods A Rover (Random House, RRP $32.95). It is the last volume in his Underworld USA trilogy (following on from the brutal American Tabloid, which was made into a film, and The Cold Six-Thousand). Its a mighty and macho tome. It finishes his trilogy of conspiracy theories drawn from the Kennedy and other early eras. Its told in the crime-meisters customary staccato prose with jive talk and redneck language. The jump-cut style is peopled by shoot-to-kill cops, FBI agents, black power mavericks and communist informers, with a sprinkling of voodoo, serious drugs and gratuitous violence. This fictional version of recent American history is so over the top you will enjoy believing it. Verdict: Magnificent
