Description

From the iconic image of a little boy saluting his father's casket to his tragic death at age thirty- eight, John F. Kennedy, Jr., was never far from the public eye. Now the friend who John was flying to see the night he died reveals the private man behind the public myth. Billy and John shared summers in Hyannisport and formed a bond in the Kennedy compound that lasted well into adulthood. With Forever Young, Noonan offers a unique glimpse into the private life of his boyhood friend-his courtship with Carolyn, his relationship with his mother, Jackie, and his struggle with being the son of a great man he hardly remembered. Affectionate yet candid, Noonan's deeply personal memoir ultimately emerges as the definitive portrait of the son of Camelot.

Professional reviews

"This account of JFK, Jr.'s, short life could not be more engaging. The issues of class privilege and its burdens, as much as the Kennedy lineage, are portrayed with casual sophistication and an ear for universal narratives. An insider's biography, it has riveting stories that reveal Kennedy's humanitarian heart as well as his recklessness. The author has a nuanced grasp of what John and his sister, Caroline, faced as they navigated a complicated web of friends and critics, and dealt constantly with their celebrity and the weight of everyone's expectations. Adam Grupper is a marvelous interpreter of Kennedy's story--understated but not dull, and conveying a tone that perfectly evokes Billy Noonan talking at various stages of his relationship with the departed icon.
