Author and Journalist Dominick Dunne Has Died

7623_dunne_dominick.jpgAuthor and journalist Dominick Dunne has passed away after battling cancer, leaving behind a collection of bestselling novels, a memoir, and two essay collections.

In a mediabistro.com interview last year, the legendary Vanity Fair special correspondent talked about the journalism stories that defined his career: the death of Princess Diana, the O.J. Simpson media circus, and trial for the Menendez brothers. In the last year of his life, he was dedicated to finishing his novel, “Too Much Money,” which will be released in December.

Here’s more from the interview: “I was always so proud of my brother [John Gregory Dunne] He got his book finished and had the heart attack. His book came out after he was dead. I’ve just got to get this book finished…I just knew there was something wrong. I came back and they found this. I’ve taken the first of six treatments and then I go in the hospital and they go in and see how much they got…I’m more than half-way through. 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.”
