• "The tales Solomon returns with, of profound disability and extreme differences overcome, make it a bible of empathy and inclusion"

  • "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"

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

  • "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""

  • "[A] magnificent study of disability and identity differences"
