The Rainbow Comes And Goes: A Mother and Son on Life, Love, and Loss /Anderson Cooper & Gloria Vanderbilt/308 pgs

Through an exchange of emails between mother, Gloria Vanderbilt and her son, Anderson Cooper, a story unfolds that takes readers into Gloria Vanderbilt’s tumultuous life, during the "Custody Trial of the Century”, as a young adult dating Screen Gods and Crooners, through each of her marriages, her son Carter Cooper's suicide and her husband Wyatt Cooper's death. She talks about the women who raised her, her estranged relationship with her mother and what growing up in a home without an adult male role model meant for her as a child and as an adult choosing life partners. The Rainbow Comes and Goes is both memorable and relatable as these iconic figures share personal feelings about their losses, from their own private vantage points rather than a third-party account filled with stories of Hollywood Flash, World Jet-Setting and Regret.
