Description
What Remains is a haunting memoir about a girl from a working class town who becomes an award-winning television producer and marries a prince, Anthony Radziwill, the nephew of President John F. Kennedy. Carole DiFalco Radziwill grew up in a small suburb with a large, eccentric cast of characters. At the age of nineteen, she struck out for New York City to find a different life. Her career at ABC News led her to the refugee camps of Cambodia, to a bunker in Tel Aviv, and to the scene of the Menendez murders. Her marriage led her into the old world of European nobility and the newer world of American aristocracy. What Remains begins with loss and returns to loss. A small plane plunges into the ocean, carrying John Kennedy, Anthony's cousin, and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Carole's closest friend. Three weeks later Anthony dies of cancer. The summer of the plane crash, the four friends were meant to be cherishing Anthony's last days. Instead, Carole and Anthony mourned John and Carolyn, as Carole planned her husband's memorial. Carole Radziwill explores the complexities of marriage, the importance of friendship, and the challenges of self-invention with unflinching honesty.
