Publisher's Summary

From youth to adulthood, Rob Littell spent 20 years alongside John F. Kennedy Jr.—through laughter and sorrow, joy and heartbreak. In this moving and poignant memoir of their touching friendship, Rob Littell himself shares his story with listeners.

Rob Littell was a freshman at Brown University when he met JFK Jr. Although Littell came from a privileged background, it was worlds apart from the glamorous life of the son of the late president and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Eager to be accepted on his own terms, Kennedy responded to Littell’s irreverence toward his celebrity, and they became close friends. Littell recounts dinners at Jacqueline Onassis’s apartment—where she surprised him with his favorite of specially burned hamburger—and weekends at her retreat in Martha’s Vineyard, where she critiqued their touch football. As students, Littell and Kennedy bummed around Europe. Later, they shared apartments in New York. Later still, Littell was part of John’s secret wedding to Carolyn Bessette on Cumberland Island, Georgia - and three years later a pallbearer at his funeral.

This is an intimate, detailed and affectionate memoir of an unusual young man by a close friend.

    "Good book."

    It was a very revealing book regarding JFK Jr. as it was written by his close friend, who knew a lot about him.

    "A useful piece of history"
    What did you like best about The Men We Became? What did you like least?

    Littell is a good writer and knows how to keep a story moving. His short book adds personal and otherwise unavailable historical information about an American celebrity who had his long term eye on the presidency but whose life was unexpectedly cut short. It is not a page turner but provides a unique perspective from a close and observant friend.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Men We Became?

    His admiring descriptions of Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy, John's mother.


    What three words best describe Robert T. Littell???s voice?

    He reads well.


    Did The Men We Became inspire you to do anything?

    No
