Although the stories in this book are a bit dated, they are written in Dominick Dunne's inimitable style, chock full of gossip about the rich, famous and infamous. I very much enjoyed this book, and it was interesting to look back on some of these cases after the passage of time.
Dominic Dunne "chronicles the escapades, excesses and eccentricities of high society...offers 15 provocative portraits of the most luminous figures of the decade.." Non-fiction, great collection of gossip.
