Book Overview

Jules Mendelson is wealthy. Astronomically so. He and his wife lead the kind of charity-giving, art-filled, high-society life for which each has been carefully groomed. Until Jules falls in love with Flo March, a beautiful actress/waitress. What Flo discovers about the superrich is not a pretty sight. And in the end, she wants no more than what she was promised. But when Flo begins to share the true story of her life among the Mendelsons, not everyone...

Dominick Dunne at his best!

This has to be one of Mr. Dunne's best books. Having read all of his books, I think this is the best. It has many fascinating characters and true to his style, he definitely knows how to keep his readers interested. If you love Mr. Dunne, you will love this book.


Dominck Dunne's captivating tale of a wealthy man and his mistress is loosely based on the story of Vicky Morgan and Alfred Bloomingdale. Whether you followed that story or not, you will find this book hard to put down.

Book was difficult to put down and I read it feversihly

An Inconvenient Woman became one of my favorite books as soon as I read the description of the characters attending an upscale LA funeral. The author, one of my favorites, knows these people back to front and he writes of them with insight as well as scorn. Complications in the lives of the rich and powerful have never been so keenly described but Dunne manages to make each character complete. He can write compassionately as well as comically of villains and whores and princes. The character upon whom the moral voice is attached, Phillip, is mult-dimensional and always truthful. The story reminds me of what I liked most about old Columbo episodes. Apart from that, the story holds the reader at a good pace. You definitely want to follow all of these characters, who are real enough that we can smell their Bev Hills scents and see their tucked chins. I am always impressed with D. Dunne, who has such such a gentle way with his down-and-outers. I hate to see overdrawn characters and Dunne never does this. He takes the reader between the gutters and the mansions of LA with finesse, never allowing one or the other to take the stage too long. I will read anything he writes and I hope he never stops because he is a sure voice for our times.

"Couldn't put it down"

This is one of several Dominick Dunne books that I have read, and definitely one if his best. The characters are so vividly written that you feel you are voyeur in the lives of these rich and fancy people.Dominick Dunne writes with such flow that you really hate when you come to the end of the book. Definitely a must read for Dominick Dunne fans like me.
