Review Of: Far From the Tree By:
A portrait of love: hard-fought, hard-won, exhausting, brutal, beautiful love.
Ver van de boom is een indrukwekkend panorama... ("Far from the Tree" is an impressive panorama...)
Sympathetic but unsparing, never romanticizing his subjects but alive to the remarkable ways some manage to cope with what most of us would regard as overwhelming difficulties, Solomon has written a book that lives long in the memory.
Os protagonistas do livro não são os números, mas as pessoas. (The protagonists of the book are not statistics, but people.)
Numa era em que a tecnologia reforça a ilusão da perfeição adquirida, o livro é uma crônica do afeto que move a aceitação incondicional. (In an era in which technology enhances the illusion that perfection can be acquired, the book is a chronicle of affection that moves towards unconditional acceptance.)
