A collection of Dunne's Vanity Fair articles from the 1980's about the top 1% of the 1%. I love Dominic Dunne and how he was both an insider and an outsider in Hollywood and "high society." He had a way of ensuring you knew the truth and how he felt about the truth when you read between the lines.
Always interesting reading this little, likable gadfly and his take on celebrity crime.
What a fabulous book! All the books I have read by Mr. Dunne are superb. He was a truly talented writer and had access to so many social circles that made it possible to tell us these stories. That being said, he would not have had the access if he wasn't trusted and respected by those he surrounded himself with. I want more, more, more. I think he is one of the truly great writers of our time.
This book is a collection of essays that Dominick Dunne wrote for "Vanity Fair" magazine in the late 80s thru the beginning of the 90s. Depending on whether I had heard of the subject of each essay or not, the book alternately held and lost my interest. I have enjoyed Dunne's novels a lot more than this book, however.**#35 of 120 books pledged to read/review during 2017**
Very outdated, but fun.
I love Dominick Dunne and have read nearly all of his books. His column in Vanity Fair is my favorite part of the magazine, but this is actually the least interesting of his books I have read, maybe because many of the people are unknown to me. It was written in the 80's. Sometimes I wonder if I was even alive then, because it was all a huge blur. . .
I have always enjoyed Dominic Dunne's writing in Vanity Fair Magazine. The Mansions of Limbo is a series of vignettes; stories of the rich, famous and infamous filled with Dunn'e usual "juicy" details.It is an entertaining read.It is much like reading a series of his articles from the magazine.
Great international society gossip stories from the late 1980s and very early 1990s. Even though no longer current (like the Menendez murders case, up to the point of arrest), they're still juicy.
These were little essays on the very rich. True stories and interesting.
