Riassunto:

"The Boswell of the blue bloods."-- San  Francisco Examiner.

"One of the snappiest  writers around."--Liz Smith, New York  Daily News.

From the author of the  best-selling People Like Us and   The Two Mrs. Grenviles comes this  unvarnished look at the gilded world of the real-life  rich and famous. Here are the highly colorful and  highly provocative look at the gilded world of the  real-life rich of famous. Here are the highly  colorful and highly provocative close-up interviews  Dominick Dunne has written for Vanity  Fair. In them, Dunne tells all about  today's creme de la creme as only as insider can tell  it. Here is his engaging profile of the  everlasting regal Elizabeth Taylor; a bizarre encounter with  Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos exiled in Hawaii; a  revealing, behind-the-scenes portrait of the great  poseur Claus von Bulow; an inquiry into the squalid  life and mysterious death of Alfred Bloomingdale's  mistress, Vicki Morgan; Dunne's moving account of  his daughter's violent death and the man who got  away with her murder; as well as revealing glimpses  of Ivan Boesky, Ava Gardner, Diane Keaton, Gloria  Vanderbilt, Candy and Aaron Spelling, and  others-plus a look inside the exclusive Mortimer's  restaurant and the real Palm Beach. Sassy and stirring,  candid and controversial, Fatal  Charms is a startling expose of charm-in all its  guises-both fatal and benign.

Sinossi:

Dominick Dunne has met them all--stars and slugs, criminals and victims, the innocent and the hideously guilty--and now his two provocative collections of Vanity Fair portraits are in one irresistible volume. From posh Park Avenue duplexes to the extravagant mansions of Beverly Hills, from tasteful London town houses to the wild excesses of million-dollar European retreats, here are the movers and shakers--and the people who pretend to be.

Among colorful profiles and revealing glimpses of Elizabeth Taylor, Claus von Bülow, Gloria Vanderbilt, and Aaron Spelling, discover who dumped an heiress the night before the wedding to run off with the best man . . . what happens when the ex-husband of a movie legend becomes president . . . why a beautiful singer fell in with the mob . . . and, in Dunne's most personal story, how a lying murderer and a limelight-loving judge denied justice to his family after his daughter's life was brutally destroyed.

Filled with pathos and wit, insight and sass, this candid, controversial volume gives you an extraordinary peek into the rarefied world of the rich, the royal, and the ruined. For Dunne is the man who knows all their secrets--and now those secrets are out.
