Andrew Solomon On Parents, Children And Differing Identities

Nov 26, 2012

“The apple never falls far from the tree,” the saying goes. But what happens when it does? Our guest today tells the stories of children whose identities are very different from their parents, such as dwarfs who are born to parents of average stature.  How do parents and children navigate these differences?  And what do these children have in common?

Writer and psychology lecturer Andrew Solomon’s latest book is "Far From The Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity."
