Glamorous and often in the public eye, but also passionate and deeply intimate, their relationship was transformative for both of them. With exquisite prose, Haag paints a portrait of a young man with an enormous capacity for love and an adventurous spirit that drove him to live life to its fullest.
A haunting book, Come to the Edge is a lasting evocation of a time and a place - of the indelible sting of the loss of young love, and of the people who shape you and remain with you, whether in person or in spirit. It is about being young and full of hope, with all the potential of your life as yet unfulfilled, and of coming of age at a moment in New York’s history when the city at once held danger, magic, and endless possibilities for self-discovery. Rarely has a love story been told so beautifully.

Beautifully written and narrated.
This book is basically a love story, beautifully written and narrated. JFK Junior is portrayed in a sensitive way, by a woman who loved him deeply. In many Waze however, this is really a fictional biography. The book is told in such detail, and with such detailed dialogue, that it is very clear that most if not all of the dialogue would have to be fabricated, since no one could remember such detailed conversations, even if one were keeping a very exhaustive contemporaneous diary.
The book is also a bit week on the details of their break up. It's not exactly clear how and why they drifted apart, other than some suggestions of infidelity. That said however, it's a good listen and well worth the time.
