So What Do You Do, Dominick Dunne?

Diane Clehane, mediabistro.com’s “Lunch at Michael’s” columnist, chats with Dominick Dunne about his multi-platform media career—and now that he’s finished writing about the inquest into Princess Diana’s death for Vanity Fair, he’s dedicating himself to finishing his latest (and possibly last) novel, A Solo Act. “I’m more than half-way through,” he reports. “But I haven’t actually worked on it for a long time. Now I’m back on it full-time—that’s my life now until I finish… I think it’s going to take me a couple months of solid work.”

Dunne also describes his role in writing the afterword to If I Did It:

“I did it for the Goldmans. I never read the book,” he explains. “When [Fred Goldman] asked me, I didn’t want to do it, but I couldn’t turn him down. I said to him, ‘I’m not going to read the book. What I will write about is my relationship with you and your wife and your daughter.’ That’s what I did.”
