Dominick Dunne (1925 – 2009)

This “Boswell of the bluebloods” was a writer whose tips came from unnamed sources and “waiter[s] serving [him] risotto at dinner parties”. Though Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. disparagingly described him a “gossip columnist” and he had to pay undisclosed damages to a Californian Congressman named Gary Condit in 2005, Dunne’s Vanity Fair columns were the stuff of legends. Dominick Dunne was as much of a personality as his subjects and we’re unlikely to see a journalist as remarkable as this gent again.
