In his latest book, "Far From the Tree," author Andrew Solomon examines the lives of parents with children who are "different" -- kids with conditions like deafness or autism, for example. Although many parents with exceptional children feel they won't be able to meet the challenge, Solomon finds a pattern: despite the difficulties, such parents frequently report being unexpectedly enriched by the experience. We'll talk to Solomon about the public response to the book, which won the 2012 National Book Critics Circle award for nonfiction, among many other awards.

Guests:

Andrew Solomon, journalist and author of "Far From the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity"
