Reviewed in the United States on March 4, 2017
Life in all its agony and glory reaches out to the reader from the pages of Anderson Cooper's harrowing unforgettable memoir, Dispatches from the Edge. Poignantly intertwining his personal and public life, he takes the reader into places few have been or ever want to go. Fueled in part by the early death of his father and by his brother's suicide, Anderson seeks out those places where the pain outside mirrors his pain inside. His willingness to be vulnerable through his writing, as well as on-air, is a gift to us all. Anyone who has worked for justice and truth in a developing nation, or in their own backyard, will recognize much here, as well as find themselves somehow comforted by Anderson's telling of an age-old story that unfortunately never ends.
