fabulous dead people

Bubbles Rothermere
Fabulous Dead People, by Christopher Petkanas, is one of the best regular columns on the New York Times' T Magazine website.  This collection of witty, lightly acerbic essays is screaming to be published as a book, sort of a Cultural Amnesia for the Tatler readership.  Mr. Petkanas chronicles the foibles of the (deceased) rich and famous in a snarkily refined and politely salacious tone, similar to the much-missed Vanity Fair writer Dominick Dunne. Fabulous Dead People is a drĂ´le reminder that today's tabloid fodder pales in comparison to the scandals, eccentricities and personalities of yesteryear.
