If you love gossip, you'll love this. With the obvious exception of the ending of this "novel," I doubt very much else is fiction. The name-dropping gets to the point of being laugh-out-loud funny ("How many names can I get into just one sentence?"), but the behind-the-scenes tales of the OJ trial are juicy.
I am a huge Dunne fan . . . and even after all these years, the OJ trial was still interesting to read about. It's just amazing the name-dropping and the lives of the priviledged and the odd coincidences this man gets into. Fascinating - great "beach read" book.
