Let Me Set the Scene For You
Dominick Dunne passed away today at home in Manhattan. I cover it briefly -- with links -- on January Magazine. Marie Brenner breaks our hearts with her remembrances online at Vanity Fair:
Let me set the scene for you. That phrase was Dominick at his best, at once intimate and detached. His voice always pulled you in, whether as a reader or as a friend. I had not known what to expect on that last day. It seemed impossible to believe that Nick, whose life had been defined by astonishing reinventions, would not find a way to navigate another act.I’ll miss his sweetly bitchy takes on everything he set those big round glasses on.
