“One of the many virtues of Mr. Solomon’s work – perhaps its most important virtue – is its fearlessness.” The New York Times

National Book Award-winning author Andrew Solomon blends reflection, decades-long research and personal experience to create portraits of the human condition like no other. His books include Far from the Tree: Parents, Children & the Search for Identity, an examination of the means by which families accommodate children with physical, mental and social challenges and The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression, widely considered the definitive text on depression as it plays out in the self and in the world. In his most recent book, Far and Away, Solomon turns to his travels during the past 25 years to offer thought-provoking angles on his enduring themes of life, death and outsiderhood – and the dignity to be found within every one of them.

Books by both authors will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Chaucer'sbr />
