2/27/1995 American Tabloid is published

February 27, 1995.  This date saw the publication of American Tabloid, James Ellroy's novel which Kirkus Reviews described as a " lurid, volcanic historical epic."  It involves J. Edgar Hoover, Howard Hughes, Jimmy Hoffa, John F. Kennedy and his brother Bobby, and a plot to catch JFK with a call girl, among other things.  Time called it one of the best books of the year.
