Synopsis: Dominick Dunne has met them all–stars and slugs, criminals and victims, the innocent and the hideously guilty–and now his two provocative collections of Vanity Fair portraits are in one irresistible volume. From posh Park Avenue duplexes to the extravagant mansions of Beverly Hills, from tasteful London town houses to the wild excesses of million-dollar European retreats, here are the movers and shakers–and the people who pretend to be.

Among colorful profiles and revealing glimpses of Elizabeth Taylor, Claus von B√ºlow, Gloria Vanderbilt, and Aaron Spelling, discover who dumped an heiress the night before the wedding to run off with the best man . . . what happens when the ex-husband of a movie legend becomes president . . . why a beautiful singer fell in with the mob . . . and, in Dunne’s most personal story, how a lying murderer and a limelight-loving judge denied justice to his family after his daughter’s life was brutally destroyed.

Filled with pathos and wit, insight and sass, this candid, controversial volume gives you an extraordinary peek into the rarefied world of the rich, the royal, and the ruined. For Dunne is the man who knows all their secrets–and now those secrets are out.
