Four Friends is an immersive, wide-ranging, tragic, and ultimately inspiring account of promising lives cut short, written with compassion, honesty, and insight. It not only captures the fragility of life but also its poignant, magisterial, and pivotal moments.
The latest book by William D. Cohan chronicles the lives of four of Mr. Cohan’s classmates at the very elite Phillips Academy Andover who had grown to prove to the world that they had something special to offer, yet fate intervened and took them away from us all too soon.
“We meet and get to know Jack Berman, Will Daniel, Harry Bull and John Kennedy Jr. in ways we may not have known them before,” said a review in goodreads.com.
Cohan is an American business writer. He is a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. The book “has a wonderful fluidity that grabs onto you so you never want to put it down making for easy reading yet rich with detail,” said the review. It added: “While all four gentlemen made some sort of impact on society, we aren’t bogged down with pages of what feels like excerpts extracted from a history book.”
