A freelance writer, Anderson Cooper has authored a variety of articles that have appeared in many other outlets, including Details magazine.
In May 2006, Anderson Cooper published a memoir for HarperCollins, Dispatches from the Edge, detailing his life and work in Sri Lanka, Africa, Iraq and Louisiana over the previous year.
