The only reason I ever subscribed to Vanity Fair magazine was to read the monthly articles they carried by great chronicler of his times, Dominick Dunne. Just as in his novels, the subject might be a foreign Ambassador or a noted society matron .... people I didn't PERSONALLY know, but to whom I became very familiar and liked or disliked very much, once Dunne was through profiling them and their activities in such detail. My favorite profile in this book was of one of America's greatest, but perhaps underrated, actresses ...... Jane Wyman. Her career was having a great revival at that time in the 1980's, bringing her Emmys and Golden Globes and much acclaim for playing the indomitable matriarch Angela Channing on TV's highly rated "Falcon Crest." And while the lovely lady was glad to be interviewed about that, or her movie career of the 40's and 50's which had brought her an Academy Award, as well as three other nominations for the Oscar, she absolutely refused to discuss that she had been the first wife of the current President, Ronald Reagan. I admired Dunne for complimenting her on her good taste, although he did predict that when Jane Wyman would die .... the fact of that old marriage would be the lead in her obituaries. And he was right .... it was.

It is very interesting to read about the type of life that you will never experience. The wealthy elite are a curious bunch...their concerns are at once common and unique. The only thing that bothered me was the timeliness of the articles. With so much time passed since they were written, some of the information was no longer correct.

I've just completed reading this book, a couple of decades after it was released. It was interesting reading about individuals I remember from the newspapers and tabloids in the 80's and 90's. I found the stomach churning decadence that so many of the affluent written about in this book quite sickening. Dunne was always a very good writer and the book is like all his work - very well written. Many of the chapters are excerpts and I think expanded work from his Vanity Fair articles of the time.
  • Mightsinger
Dominick Dunne was an amazing wealth of information regarding all those rich and famous people out there. Many of their lives seem so shallow and their parties are out to impress. Maybe it is the only thing they have to look forward to doing. Their lives sound exhausting, but then they don't have to cook, clean, or even to set the table for their company!

It got a bit boring after a while. Several of the stories were about wealthy Europeans I had never heard of.
