Description The Von Bulow Affair de William Wright:

Hailed by David Halberstam as "a fine whodunit by a first-rate writer," William Wright's true-crime book delivers a chilling, comprehensive account of one of the most scandalous attempted-murder trials of our timesOn December 21, 1980, millionaire socialite Sunny Von Bulow was found unconscious on her bathroom floor. She would remain in a coma for twenty-seven years. Although her condition appeared to be the result of hypoglycemia, Sunny's children suspected their stepfather, the debonair Claus Von Bulow, of attempting to murder his wife and abscond with her fortune. Claus went on trial for attempted murder in 1982, initiating a legal circus that would last for years.In the greatest society trial of the twentieth century, the opulence of Newport and New York provides a backdrop for one of the most intriguing family feuds of all time. In this comprehensive account of the trial and its aftermath, Wright draws on court transcripts and interviews with those involved to present an unparalleled behind-the-scenes look into the legal proceedings as well as the Von Bulows' private lives.This ebook contains photos. William Wright, the author of ten nonfiction books on diverse subjects, was born in Philadelphia in 1930. After earning a BA at Yale University, he served in the US Army as a translator and interpreter of Mandarin Chinese. Later he became an editor at "Holiday" and the editor of "Chicago" magazine. In addition to "The Von Bulow ""Affair," Wright is the author of many books, among them "Lillian Hellman: The Image, the Woman"- "Pavarotti: My World"- and "Born That Way: Genes, Behavior, Personality."
