WE LOVE ANDERSON COOPER by R.L. Maizes - NPR "Meaning Well and Making A Mess in 'We Love Anderson Cooper'"

NPR | JULY 25, 2019

“The attention-grabbing title isn't the only winning thing about R.L. Maizes' debut collection. The declaration serves as a wry punchline in the book's outstanding opening story, which is about a boy who decides to out himself publicly at his bar mitzvah rather than read his assigned anti-homosexual Torah portion from Leviticus. ‘Why didn't you talk to us first?’ his well-meaning but work-distracted parents ask after the disastrous service at his Long Island temple, a video of which goes viral. ‘We would have understood. We love Anderson Cooper.’”

We Love Anderson Cooper by R.L. Maizes received a rave review in NPR! Follow the link above to read the full review.
