I met Mr. Dunne at a book signing in Minneapolis, just before he went to California to cover the trial of the Menendez brothers. At the time, his fame was yet to come; he sat alone at a table with perhaps one or two people in the store, buying his books and having them autographed. He seemed a little shy, alone, but so elegant and so willing to talk and answer questions. After the Simpson trial, it is hard to ever imagine Mr. Dunne alone again. I’ve followed his articles in Vanity Fair, and read all his books. Will we ever see his last novel, the update to People Like Us? He will be so very missed.
