Random House Publishing Group | March 29, 2011 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Come to the Edge: A Memoir is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
The Love Story of JFK Jr. and Christina Haag • New York Times bestseller
 
When Christina Haag was growing up on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, John F. Kennedy, Jr., was just one of the boys in her circle of prep school friends, a skinny kid who lived with his mother and sister on Fifth Avenue and who happened to have a Secret Service detail following him discreetly at all times. A decade later, after they had both graduated from Brown University, Christina and John were cast in an off-Broadway play together. It was then that John confessed his long-standing crush on her, and they embarked on a five-year love affair. Glamorous and often in the public eye, but also passionate and deeply intimate, their relationship was transformative for both of them. Exquisitely written, Come to the Edge is an elegy to first love, a lost New York, and a young man with an enormous capacity for tenderness, and an adventurous spirit, who led his life with surprising and abundant grace.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Come to the Edge Christina, I want to thank you for writing this beautiful memoir. It is well written. You have taken me inside the life of people who are bigger than life and gave me a chance to know them better, humanized them. You have brought me along for the ride, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, troubling. I laughed and cried with you. John was a beautiful star that was born to be a support for his mother, maybe a source of hope for her as well as,maybe, for a nation that had lost their Camelot. His star shined bright but for a short duration, his work on this plane was done. What a beautiful friendship, what a heartwarming and heartbreaking you shared with this great soul.I believe he will be with you and you will feel his presence here and there until you to leave this plane. Thank you for sharing this personal journey with us. May you be well and Godspeed.
