Abstract

by singing the song Jackie had taught them both as toddlers: "If you go into the woods today, you're in for a big surprise. . . ." With John's wife, Carolyn, they form a plucky quartet, fighting the common enemy of cancer and supporting each other in public, unscripted roles. As Anthony's cancer progresses, Radziwill candidly admits becoming weary of her part as uber-organizer, of being the one to read the research, assemble the experts, book the flights, schedule the scans and MRIs and study the pathology reports. Carolyn Kennedy, also a Jersey girl trying her best to improvise a role, bolsters her with girlie distractions and a funny, self-dramatizing persona. And then the midnight phone call comes. When the plane carrying John F. Kennedy Jr., his wife and her sister crashed into the sea off Cape Cod, the whole nation asked why. Only Carole Radziwill had another question: Who is left to help me now? ree weeks later, she didn't need an answer. Strangely, it's her beloved Anthony who remains the most elusive in this otherwise fine book. Unlike John, and especially Carolyn, who flits onto the page like a luminous, six-foot fairy, Anthony stays remote. "He
