I've got this book on order: Far From the Tree by Andrew Solomon. At nearly 1000 pages, including notes, it delves into the lives of parents with extraordinary children. I have no doubt that I'll lose myself in it, and hopefully drown in the simple bliss of knowing that I'm not alone.
Oh, I had seen this book in NYtimes book review for best books of 2012 - I am hoping to get it for Christmas! If not, I will buy it myself. Thank you for reminding me again.ReplyDelete
