15 years ago... We lost John F Kennedy Jr. Away from the weekly trash magazines at the grocery store. Who was he? What was it like being America's first and only Prince? From the I Heart Radio Studio I'm Unplugged and Totally Uncut with the author of The Good Son Christopher Andersen In THE GOOD SON: JFK Jr. and the Mother He Loved by Christopher Andersen (Gallery Books; on sale October 28th; Hardcover; $27.00), the #1 New York Times bestselling biographer delivers another dramatic installment in the lives of the Kennedys—including new details about JFK Jr., his relationship with his mother, his many girlfriends, and the night of his tragic death. It’s hard to believe that fifteen years ago John F. Kennedy Jr., the crown prince of Camelot and heir to his father’s charming good looks and relentless ambition, ultimately inherited JFK’s tragic legacy, too. As we remember JFK Jr.’s remarkable life and untimely death, master biographer Andersen explores the unique connection between the extraordinary son who captivated America and the beautiful and mysterious mother who molded him into a man. Like many parents and their children, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and JFK Jr. shared an intense, tender, and nurturing bond. It was, quite simply, the most important relationship in John’s life. With riveting insight, Andersen reveals how mother and son influenced, challenged, and supported each other through good times and bad. THE GOOD SON unveils startling new details about a family we thought we already knew, including: • John’s reaction to his mother’s bout with suicidal depression and growing dependence on prescription drugs following JFK’s assassination in Dallas •Jackie’s tumultuous marriage to the Greek shipping magnate and the surreal and ultimately catastrophic impact the Onassis years had on John Jr.’s upbringing •The power Jackie wielded over John Jr.’s affairs with high-profile celebrities, including trysts with Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Daryl Hannah, and others (and one particularly secretive dalliance only Jackie and others) •The premonitions that terrified Jackie about John’s fate – which, tragically, came to eventual fruition on that fateful July evening •New details about John’s turbulent marriage, the senseless plane crash that took his life and the lives of the Bessette sisters, the aftermath of shock, loss, grief, and confusion. At once bittersweet, provocative, thoughtful, and inspiring, THE GOOD SON is the compelling, often heartbreaking tale of lives tested by history, tragedy, and the public eye – the impossible-to-put-down story of two of America’s most beloved and enduring figures, and the unbreakable bond between a mother and her son. ABOUT CHRISTOPHER ANDERSEN Christopher Andersen is the critically acclaimed author of sixteen New York Times bestsellers, including his most recent biography of Jack and Jackie Kennedy, These Few Precious Days, and his book about JFK Jr., The Day John Died, which reached number one. His books have been translated into twenty-five languages worldwide. A former Time contributing editor and longtime senior editor of People, he has also written hundreds of articles for such publications as the New York Times, Life, and Vanity Fair.

James Bond and Arroe together? From the I Heart Radio Studio... I'm Unplugged and Totally Uncut with Sir Roger Moore Roger Moore was born on October 14, 1927, in London, England. An art school student of painting, he made his film debut as an extra in 1945, and appeared in small roles on stage and in films prior to army service. Moore appeared on Broadway in A Pin to See the Peepshow (1953) and in the Hollywood film The Last Time I Saw Paris (1954). On television he won stardom as the action-man hero of such series as Ivanhoe (1958), The Alaskans (1960-'61) and The Persuaders (1972-'73), but most especially, the character of Simon Templar in The Saint (1962-'69). His own wittiest critic, Moore brought a lightweight insouciance to the role of James Bond in seven films between Live and Let Die (1973) and A View to a Kill (1985). Recent films include Spice World (1997). He was knighted in 2003. Moore was named a commander in France's National Order of Arts and Letters on October 8, 2008. The award is one of France's highest honors. The actor was in Paris to promote his memoir, My Word Is My Bond. In 2012 as James Bond films celebrated its 50th anniversary, Moore released a collection of his memories about playing 007 entitled Bond On Bond: Reflections On 50 Years of James Bond Movies ABOUT HIS BOOK ONE LUCKY BASTARD In a career that spans over seven decades, Roger Moore has been at the very heart of Hollywood. Of course, he’s an actor and has starred in films that have made him famous the world over, but he’s also a well-known prankster, joker, and raconteur. Despite the fact that he is well known as one of the nicest guys in the business, on and off the screen he has always been up for some fun. In ONE LUCKY BASTARD: Tales from Tinseltown (Lyons Press, October 2014, 978-0-4930-0797-4, $26.95 hardcover) Moore lifts the lid on the movie business, from Hollywood to Pinewood—sharing outrageous tales from his own life and career as well as those told to him by a host of stars and filmmakers, including Sean Connery, Tony Curtis, Michael Caine, David Niven, Frank Sinatra, Gregory Peck, John Mills, Peter Sellers, Cubby Broccoli, and more. Wonderfully entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny, these extraordinary tales from the world of the movies is vintage Moore at his very best.
