TOO MUCH MONEY by Dominick Dunne
Released: Dec. 15, 2009

"On full display here, Dunne's (Another City, Not My Own, 1997, etc.) jaded eye for the foibles of the ultraspoiled, his stylish wit and eavesdropper's ear—they are among the many reasons he is sorely missed."
A vindictive multibillionairess tries to suppress a seasoned raconteur's lust for life, not to mention his tell-all new novel, in this posthumous roman à clef by Dunne, who died of cancer in August 2009. Read full book review >
Released: July 1, 2001

"Are the scales of justice at work here? Hardly. But Dunne's courtroom tales are a lot more lucid than most judge's instructions to their juries."

BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Oct. 1, 1999

"The dark thread that underlies the mostly frivolous tales keeps this book on a par with his most successful novels."

A SEASON IN PURGATORY by Dominick Dunne
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 5, 1993

"But the main pleasures here involve nothing more moving than watching a wily old pro set up characters with as much individuality as ninepins preparatory to bowling them down. (Literary Guild Selection for Summer)"
It's Kennedy-bashing time again, as rich-and-venal chronicler Dunne (An Inconvenient Woman, etc.) drags writer-hero Harrison Burns through 20 years of guilt for having helped our most prominent Irish Catholic family cover up a sex murder by its fair-haired scion. Read full book review >
