What Remains Book Summary

A stunning, tragic memoir about John F. Kennedy Jr., his wife Carolyn Bissett, and his cousin Anthony Radziwill, by Radziwill’s widow, now a star of The Real Housewives of New York.

What Remains is a vivid and haunting memoir about a girl from a working-class town who becomes an award-winning television producer and marries a prince, Anthony Radziwill. Carole grew up in a small suburb with a large, eccentric cast of characters. At 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 F. Kennedy Jr., Anthony’s cousin, and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Carole’s closest friend. Three weeks later Anthony dies of cancer. With unflinching honesty and a journalist’s keen eye, Carole Radziwill explores the enduring ties of family, the complexities of marriage, the importance of friendship, and the challenges of self-invention. Beautifully written, What Remains “gets at the essence of what matters,” wrote Oprah Winfrey. “Friendship, compassion, destiny.”

    This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I laughed as hard as I cried. Carole is a gifted writer that brings the reader into her moment. I stayed up all night until I was finished with her book. What a treat for the end of the day. My mom is dying and this book made me accept it. Thank you. Margie

    I just loved this book. I recently lost a loved one, and I lost my best friend many years ago, so I empathized with Carole in many ways. I actually cried a few times reading it, which is unusual for me. I didn't like how some people were referenced by first name only and I never knew who they were or didn't realize until later. Otherwise, I highly recommend this book!

    I have traveled the path of battling cancer with a loved one. I know the heartbreak, the hope and the anguish. The soul crushing loss. The author gives a candid voice to her own journey. What might have otherwise been a fairly tale is made all too real. An honestly told fascinating story. Many thanks and wishes to the author for happiness in the days ahead.
