Summary:
"In We Love Anderson Cooper, characters are treated as outsiders because of their sexual orientation, racial or religious identity, or simply because they look different. A young man courts the publicity that comes from outing himself at his bar mitzvah. When a painter is shunned because of his appearance, he learns to ink tattoos that come to life. A paranoid Jewish actuary suspects his cat of cheating on him--with his Protestant girlfriend."--Provided by publisher.
In Maizes's stories, characters are treated as outsiders because of their sexual orientation, racial or religious identity, or simply because they look different. But as she uses humor to complement the pathos, and magic to soften harsh realities, her point comes clear: We may all be outsiders at some point-- but we are never truly alone. -- adapted from jacket
