I saw Anderson Cooper’s interview on Oprah and she raved about his book, Dispatches from the Edge: A Memoir of War, Disasters and Survival. And Oprah is never wrong, right? Well, opinions on Oprah aside, she wasn’t wrong about this book. It was very good. It is the CNN anchor’s memoir of the tragedies he’s covered– Katrina, Somalia, Bosnia, Sarajevo– and the tragedies in his life– his father’s death, his brother’s suicide, and growing up as the son of Gloria Vanderbilt, American Royalty. The book is not too cumbersome and is insightful and interesting. Worth the time, definately.
