A grisly racial murder in what news commentators insist on calling “the heartland” A feeding frenzy of mass media and seamy politics An illicit love affair with the potential to wreck lives In his grandly inventive last novel John Gregory. A seuel of sorts to Playland 1994 Dunne s wickedly caustic Hollywood lampoon This time Dunne aims for a target just as easy as Tinsel Town the American judicial circus A funny bitter and sad look at those who profit and suffer from participating in an OJ like trial of the century

Nothing Lost

Dunne orchestrated these elements into a symphony of American violence chicanery and sadnessIn the aftermath of Edgar Parlance’s killing the small prairie town of Regent becomes a destination for everyone from a sociopathic teenaged superm. What do Jews do on Christmas Eve Finish good books they are readingI ve always been a fan of Joan Didion than her husband don t think I ve finished anything of Dunne s before and the beginning of this one was excuse the pun to be a trial But by the end it bore a not so distant modern cousin resemblance to the book that formed its epitaph All the King s MenIt seems to be about a trial of two young white men for a hate crime against a black man who might ve been homosexual It turns out to be about the characters who populate this small midwestern state mostly the people involved in the case as attorneys and investigators but also the criminalsIt has a lot to say about now what has become all too well understood media circuses but about the broody despair of our injustice system and maybe just the loneliness of lives that don t turn out as we would likeDamn good stuff Surprising that it hasn t been made into a movie though it may be just slightly too complex

Odel to an enigmatic attorney with secret familial links to the worlds of Hollywood and organized crime Out of their manifold convergences their jockeying for power publicity or love Nothing Lost creates a drama of magnificent scope and acidi. Too many characters in the beginning it was hard to figure out who was talking Lots of graphic violence and sex which was fine by me but others might not like Suspense builds toward the last 100 pages but before that I had to force myself to continue reading it because it was for a book club The end is wrapped up nicely and I couldnt put it down at the end
