Dunne Readies Memoir

dunne.jpeg
He’s got his hands full with the Phil Spector trial right about now, but Dominick Dunne is already looking ahead to his next project.

FBLA recently ran into the infamous writer at the Chateau Marmont during a book party for fashion scribe Dana Thomas (in town celebrating the release of her Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Luster). And he gave us the run-down on his post-Spector projects.

First, he’s set to finish the crime novel, The Solo Act, which he’s talked about before and “it’s almost finished.” Then, he’ll turn the typewriter towards himself. Dunne said he will then write a memoir “the minute I finish” Solo Act.

“I’ve had a zelig-like life,” he told FBLA. “I’ve been everywhere where something happened and I have a good story to tell.” That, he does.
