Most forms of identity within families are passed on from one generation to the next, but less explored are 'horizontal identities', those shared across communities between people with an uncommon trait. Andrew Solomon spoke to 200 families to record their experience of topics including dwarfism, deafness, transgender, prodigies, and more.

A heavy text that looks at how parents are affected when their children do not meet their expectations of 'normal'. Topics include autism, homosexuality, etc. Read from one point of view, it challenges your own ideas of what it means to be a parent (or child) and what love within a family can look like.
