The Rainbow Comes and Goes: A Mother and Son on Life, Love, and Loss


Product Description

This charming and intimate collection of correspondence between openly gay television journalist Anderson Cooper and his mother, the iconic socialite and fashion designer Gloria Vanderbilt, offers timeless wisdom and a revealing glimpse into their lives.

Anderson Cooper’s intensely busy career as a journalist for CNN and CBS’ 60 Minutes affords him little time to spend with his ninety-one year old mother. After she briefly fell ill, he and Gloria began a conversation through e-mail unlike any they had ever had before — a correspondence of surprising honesty and depth in which they discussed their lives, the things that matter to them, and what they still want to learn about each other.

Both a son’s love letter to his mother in her final years and an unconventional mother’s life lessons for her grown son, ''The Rainbow Comes and Goes'' offers a rare window into their close relationship and fascinating lives. In these often hilarious and touching exchanges, they share their most private thoughts and the hard-earned truths they’ve learned along the way. Throughout, their distinctive personalities shine through — Anderson’s darker outlook on the world is a brilliant contrast to his mother’s idealism and unwavering optimism.

An appealing blend of memoir and inspirational advice, ''The Rainbow Comes and Goes'' is a beautiful and affectionate celebration of the profound and universal bond between a parent and child. This is a thoughtful reflection on life and love, reminding us of the precious knowledge and insight that remains to be shared, no matter what age we are.
