Product description

Review

"The tales Solomon returns with, of profound disability and extreme differences overcome, make it a bible of empathy and inclusion" (Cressida Connolly Spectator)

"Andrew Solomon’s Far From The Tree is a prodigious, illuminating book about the challenge of being a parent – especially when children are out of the ordinary" (Tim Adams Observer)

"Life-affirming, thought provoking and highly readable, the book was compiled over 10 years of interviews and I found it deeply moving" (Kate Kellaway Observer)

"Many accounts are desperately moving, but Solomon goes far beyond cheap pity... The book is an exquisite written study of parental love – as well as "a how-to manual for receptivity"" (Kerry Hudson Herald)

"[A] magnificent study of disability and identity differences" (Susannah Meadows New York Times)

"This wise book is a careful and surprising study of difference between parent and child and how it shapes our lives" (Stephen Grosz Sunday Telegraph)

"For anyone struggling with decisions over parenting, it’s an affirming reminder that there is no such thing as “normal”" (Femke Colborne Big Issue in the North)

"Parents – especially mothers – are the heroes of this book, many of them describing with extraordinary absence of self-pity how they have coped with almost unimaginable adversity" (Dominic Lawson Sunday Times)

"Solomon really makes you think... Uniquely brilliant" (William Leith Evening Standard)

"Beautiful" (The Times)
