    • Abstract:
      Griffin Dunne's memoir, "The Friday Afternoon Club," explores the impact of movies, madness, and murder on his famous American family. The book features a colorful cast of characters, including his father, Dominick, a Hollywood producer turned novelist, his mother, Ellen, who had multiple affairs, and his siblings, Alex and Dominique, who were both involved in the entertainment industry. The memoir delves into both the glamorous and darker aspects of their lives, such as Dominick's closeted homosexuality, Ellen's battle with multiple sclerosis, and Dominique's tragic death. Dunne's writing is vivid and filled with rich irony, making it an entertaining tribute to his extraordinary family. [Extracted from the article]
