Quotes & Awards

  • “[Noonan’s] frank but loyal memoir is an engrossing trip that covers the ’70s and early ’80s, when their crowd partied hard and John’s life was full of promise.”

    People

  • “Grupper’s fluid, impartial delivery allows the material to speak for itself, resulting in an audio that is both easy to enjoy and easy to debate…A portrait of a flawed but intelligent individual who continually struggled under the weight of his legacy.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Could not be more engaging…Adam Grupper is a marvelous interpreter of Kennedy’s story—understated but not dull, and conveying a tone that perfectly evokes Billy Noonan talking at various stages of his relationship with the departed icon.”

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard | 3/9/2011

    " This book by JFK, Jr.'s best friend was quite interesting...an insider view of the Kennedy clan. The author's views about his pal, his wife, and his mother, Jackie O. and other famous Camelot characters seemed unvarnished and clear-eyed. Of course, the book has a sad ending... "
