Reviews

"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 *
