A charming and intimate collection of correspondence between #1 New York Times bestselling author Anderson Cooper and his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, that 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, and, like Tuesdays with Morrie, 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.… (lisätietoja)

This was meant to be a light interlude, and it was. I of course knew who Anderson Cooper and Gloria Vanderbilt were but I had never followed either of their careers and did not know the details of their lives. The book is constructed as a conversation between son and mother that began primarily as an email exchange. It worked well for the telling of Gloria Vanderbilt's upbringing, and when the two challenged one another on an opinion or pushed for more honesty. However, this personal exchange, while revealing some of the darker parts of their lives, like Gloria's drinking, tended to focus more on how the challenge was overcome rather than describing the ugliness and pain at the time. I also felt at times that Gloria Vanderbilt came across as feeling sorry for herself, even repeatedly dwelling on the same individuals or incidents; this became a little tiresome.

I listened to the Audible in which Gloria and Anderson each read their parts. I thought my experience benefited from hearing each of them tell their stories. ( )

I saw this on the best seller list and planned to skip it because: celebrities talking about their lives -- who cares? But a respected bookseller mentioned what a great audio book it was, so I gave it a shot. The mother-son conversation was appealing and they talked pretty frankly and openly about their lives and relationships. All I really knew about Gloria Vanderbilt was the jeans. And Anderson Cooper just from the news. So hearing about their divergent life approaches and their family dynamics was interesting. There were definitely some "EWW" moments when she talked about her sex life -- not sure who the audience was at that point. And some hard moments about her son, Carter's suicide. From her 92 years of living there was some wisdom and perspective -- mainly that the rainbow comes and goes -- and I was left thinking that it's the people who show up for others in the day to day stuff of life, without justification and self-congratulation who are the real celebrities.

I don’t typically like to read memoirs, but because I’ve been so impressed with Anderson Cooper and how he personifies such dignity, while exhibiting compassion for others through his interviews, I decided to give this book a try. As this work, consisting of emails between mother and son, provides a glimpse into the enigmatic lives of Gloria Vanderbilt and Anderson Cooper, it also allows one to penetrate their thoughts as they reflect upon their somewhat tragic and traumatic life experiences. As a young girl, Gloria was constantly uprooted, and was raised by her nanny Dodo, while her mother traveled about Europe. At 10, she was the center of a custody trial in which her aunt Gertrude was embroiled in a court battle with her mother to obtain control over her trust fund. In her youth, Gloria Vanderbilt, heiress to the Vanderbilt fortune, dated interesting men, such as Roald Dahl, Frank Sinatra, and Marlon Brando, and she married four times. When Anderson was a young man, his older brother Carter tragically committed suicide at the age of 23. Earlier in Anderson’s life, his father Wyatt Cooper became ill and died when Anderson was only 10 years old. Those significant events had a profound effect on Anderson and shaped him to become the compassionate, thoughtful man he is today.
I’m giving this book five stars because I really appreciated the reflections and musing about life, as Gloria and Anderson shared some very heart-rendering reflections about personal issues and their philosophies in how they viewed their lives at that point in time. While relating to what was shared, I was completely in tears by the end of this read. ( )

Cooper Anderson and his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, together tell the story of their lives in The Rainbow Comes and Goes. Both mother and son narrate the audio book. Anderson poses questions and his mother responds, revealing stories of her fascinating but bittersweet life. ( )

Mildly interesting exchange between Anderson Cooper of CNN fame and his mother Gloria Vanderbilt. It is a an edited email exchange between the two when Vanderbilt is 92 years old. Anderson asks some tough questions about her past, her family, her insecurities, optimism, artistic enterprises, four husbands and lovers and the suicide of his brother, Carter.
The reader learns a great deal about Gloria’s mother, who was a teenager married to an alcoholic Reginald when her daughter was born. Reginald died soon after and the scandal surrounding the upbringing of Gloria ensued. Good beach or winter storm read.
