Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity
PUBLISHER : Scribner
PRICE : $18
GENRE : Parenting & Relationships
In “Far from the Tree,” Andrew Solomon tells the stories of
parents who not only learn to deal with their exceptional children but also find profound meaning in doing so.
Solomon’s startling proposition is that diversity is what unites us all. He writes about families coping with deafness,
dwarfism, Down syndrome, autism, schizophrenia, multiple severe disabilities, with children who are prodigies, who are conceived in rape, who become criminals, who are transgender.
