Andrew Solomon is a generous genius. He has the ability to share his life — be it his lifelong serious battle with depression (The Noonday Demon) or his exploration of parenting children who are profoundly different and likely to be stigmatized (Far from the Tree). He has written extensively about his life as a gay man, his marriage to John Habich, and the uniquely unconventional manner they have been able to father four children.
His latest book, Far & Away: Reporting from the Brink of Change: Seven Continents, Twenty Five Years, is a compilation of his essays around the globe — Russia, China, Antarctica, Romania, Libya and South Africa — to name only a few of his far flung destinations.
…It was a pleasure to celebrate the book’s publication at a party held in the recently renovated Gottesman Hall at The New York Public Library.
