Dominick Dunne, 1925-2009

Born in Hartford, Connecticut, on October 29, 1925, Dunne first acheived national prominence in 1985 with his best-selling novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. He was also a regular contributor to Vanity Fair, his first article being an account of the trial of the man who killed his daughter Dominique. Both his fiction and nonfiction works often focused on the crimes of the rich and famous, and he made no secret that his sympathies lay with the victims.

Dominick Dunne is survived by his two sons, Griffin and Alexander.
