Far From The Tree: Parents, Children, And The Search For Identity

I’m almost done reading Andrew Solomon’s beautiful book Far From The Tree: Parents, Children, And The Search For Identity. It is one of the most insightful, enjoyable, edifying books I’ve ever read.

I’m not going to write too much because I want to go finish reading it.

This will have particular resonance for people with disabilities, their parents, parents in general, and anyone with a condition that makes them feel isolated.

I can’t recommend it highly enough.

    I loved this book. So much insight into other lives and challenges. Esp. the transgendered child. I always thought this was a medical issue. Very enlightening!! This is “THE” book.
