Now, for the first time, Michael Bergin reveals the truth behind a life lived in the limelight and a relationship shrouded in secrecy. From his early days growing up in a small blue-collar Connecticut town, to his meteoric rise as fashion icon and television star, to the passion he shared with the enigmatic and complex Carolyn Bessette, this is an inside look at the world of beauty, power, and celebrity. In 1992, Michael and Carolyn met in a bar in New York City. She was unlike any woman he had ever known - sophisticated, successful, with bewitching grace. An intensely passionate relationship was born. Not long after, Michael landed the coveted Calvin Klein underwear campaign, and his career took off. The future looked bright, and Carolyn and Michael seemed destined for a long and happy life together. But it was not to be. Four years later Michael was an international fashion icon and Carolyn was Mrs. John F. Kennedy Jr. - however, the story doesn't end there. This is the truth about their lives, a tale full of warmth, humor, heartbreak, and tragedy. Above all, The Other Man is a testament to the enduring power of love and a story about the painful choices we make with our all-too-human hearts.
