Critically acclaimed and a New York Times bestseller, COME TO THE EDGE by Christina Haag is a love story-and like all love stories, it is both unique and universal. Unique in that Christina Haag’s early love was John F. Kennedy Jr.; universal in that COME TO THE EDGE (Spiegel & Grau Trade Paperback, On Sale January 10, 2012) stirs up the reader’s memory of what it means to be young and in love.
When Christina Haag was growing up on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, John F. Kennedy Jr. was just one of the boys in her circle of prep school friends, a skinny kid who lived with his mother and sister on Fifth Avenue and who happened to have a Secret Service detail following him at a discreet distance at all times. A decade later, after they had both graduated from Brown University and were living in New York City, Christina and John were cast in an off-Broadway play together. It was then that John confessed his long-standing crush on her, and they embarked on a five-year love affair. Glamorous and often in the public eye, but also passionate and deeply intimate, their relationship was transformative for both of them.
COME TO THE EDGE is a beautiful, timeless, and elegant read, one in which 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.
