Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity

The saying goes that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. But happens when it does? Over ten years in the making, Far from the Tree is a seminal work on difference between parents and children. Most forms of identity within families are 'vertical', passed on from one generation to the next, but less explored are 'horizontal identities', those shared not between parent and child but across communities between people with an uncommon trait. Andrew Solomon spoke to 200 families to record their experience of dwarfism, autism, deafness, Down Syndrome, schizophrenia, prodigies, transgender, disability, as well as children with a predisposition to commit crimes and those born out of rape. Drawing on personal testimonies of overcoming prejudice and intolerance and his own experience as a gay man of straight parents, Andrew Solomon explores how parents bridge the gap between their child and themselves and records the voices of families seldom heard.
