The writer and social chronicler has died. One obit here. I read a lot of Dunne, both fiction and nonfiction, over the years. Saw his on-TV commentary from sundry trials; he was a central figure when you talk about OJ coverage. But his life was vastly more than that. Look for the documentary "Dominick Dunne: After the Party," on DVD, to see the range of his living.
Interviewed him once, for a miniseries from one of his books. He was gracious with me, and powerfully passionate about his causes. (On a side note, his son Griffin Dunne was a guest star on tonight's telecast of "Leverage.") And, if nothing else comes of today's sad news, he is at last able to see Dominique again.
