Synopsis

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.

Praise

Praise

“Lyrically and precisely recaptures the frenetic ecstasy of early love.”—The Washington Post
 
“[A] wistful story of love and ultimate loss . . . The life of a Kennedy is one of great privilege [and Christina] Haag’s memoir allows us intimate access. . . . She doesn’t bow to tabloid sensationalism; instead, she gently dusts off her tender, aching memories and bravely holds them to the light.”—Los Angeles Times
 
“Perfectly captures what it feels like to be young and in love—the giddiness, the lunacy, the madcap swings between exhilaration and despair . . . Haag is a beautiful writer.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“The most honest, most thoroughly rendered, most memorable memoir of young love published in recent years . . . a remarkable work.”—New York Journal of Books
 
“[A] haunting memoir.”—Marie Claire
