Sunday Book Review #140 – JFK Jr., GEORGE, and Me by Matt Berman

A couple of years ago, I wrote about JFK Jr. based on a book, Fairy Tale Interrupted, written by a co-worker at GEORGE magazine who became a friend, RoseMarie Terenzio.  Although this new book by Matt Berman provides an almost identical perspective and no keen insights, I couldn’t put it down and read it in a couple of days. Both Terenzio and Berman were common folks, and although JFK Jr. was American royalty, he was amazingly grounded.  So sad what Ted Kennedy said at Junior’s funeral – “We dared to think that this John Kennedy would live to comb gray hair.”

P.s., my yoga mate Jose Caceres Galicia told me that a cousin and he were once visiting Manhattan and stopped in a bar around noon for a drink, and a few minutes later JFK Jr. sidled up to them and ordered a drink, too. They shook his hand and soon left, but because of their excitement had forgotten on the bar a new tie they had just purchased. It’s hard to imagine Jr. traveling alone and drinking alone.
