Dominick Dunne spent much of his life in the closet.
But in many ways, that only added to the allure and mystique of the famed Vanity Fair journalist, known for living an otherwise very public life while covering the crimes of the rich and famous. From O.J. Simpson and the Menendez brothers to Phil Spector and Claus von Bülow.
Written by out gay writer Robert Hofler (lead theater critic at The Wrap with past editorial roles at Life, Us and Variety), Money, Murder, and Dominick Dunne: A Life in Several Acts is an epic biography that explores the career-defining court cases, as well as Dunne’s numerous relationships, including one with artist Norman Carby that spanned four decades. We also get a glimpse into his non-sexual relationships, too, including a very high-profile friendship with Elizabeth Taylor.
Best of all, you can win a copy of your very own from your friends here at He Said Magazine. You’ll probably have trouble putting it down, so there’s no point in saving it for a summer beach read.
Unless you want people walking by your lounge chair to think you’re really smart.
