A memoir about a girl from a working class town who becomes an award-winning television producer and marries a prince, Anthony Radziwill, nephew of John F. Kennedy. Carole DiFalco Radziwill grew up in a suburb with a large, eccentric cast of characters. At the age of nineteen, she struck out for New York. Her career at ABC News led her to the refugee camps of Cambodia, a bunker in Tel Aviv, and the scene of the Menendez murders. Her marriage led her into the old world of European nobility and the newer world of American aristocracy. The book begins with loss and returns to loss: a plane plunges into the ocean, carrying Anthony's cousin John Kennedy and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Carole's closest friend. Three weeks later, Anthony dies of cancer. Radziwill explores the complexities of marriage, the importance of friendship, and the challenges of self-invention with unflinching honesty.--From publisher description.… (mere)

I am drawn to memoirs but his was just ok. ( )

This was almost too poignant to read. Not only was it tenderly and affectionately written, but it also is a painfully good gossip about the Kennedy/Radziwill families. Those two themes made it a guilty read for those who know far, far too much about the Kennedys/Bouviers/Radziwills. When I could divorce myself from my own slightly salacious interests, it was a lovely read. But I'm still the old lady on the sidewalk on Fifth, picking out Jackie's apartment building. ( )

I had to post about this book for anyone who might be interested. It is fantastic. Carole Radziwell was married to Anthony Radziwell who was, among other things, the son of a Polish prince Stanislaw Radziwill, the nephew of Jackie Onassis Kennedy and John Kennedy. He was best friends with his cousin JFK Jr.

Carole was an accomplished journalist, and and Emmy winner for one series she did that was very good, From the Killing Fields.

I expected this book to be the usual memoir about JFK, but it wasn't. It is one of the best books that I've ever read that speaks about grief and loss. She tells their story, Anthony's death and the death of JFK Jr and Carolyn Bessette, but she weaves her words in such a beautiful way that can only be understood by those who have lost someone who was a piece of themselves. It's beautiful is how raw it is, but still gentle.
It's lovely, go read it. ( )

Surprise! This is a very good read. Most everyone will be familiar with the characters and events contained within the story. However, this is an inside look not only at the experience of cancer for a family, but the reality of the lives of the famous that normally we would have no expose to.

I admit I would never have picked up this book without having seen the author on her TV show "Real Housewives of NYC." And there apparently was discussion over her writing. So I thought I might see what the fuss was about.

This book claimed my attention immediately, and maybe because I am a cancer survivor myself, so it felt very intimate. Definitely recommend. ( )
