"The first half of one's life is for generating stories . . . the second half for telling them." These words encapsulate Little's twenty-year friendship with John Kennedy, Jr., and his mother, Jackie, and sister, Caroline. Meeting as Brown University freshmen, the young men shared housing, sports, and high jinks and continued their close relationship after graduation and marriage. Much of Littell's account rides on the Kennedy mystique as he reveals intimate information about John, his family, and his marriage to Carolyn Bessette. The summing up, however, is eloquent, as he asks what this "good and smart person born with extraordinary access and real power, endowed with trust and goodwill--inherited and earned--from most of the world" might have given back to that world had he lived.
