Author Andrew Solomon's Far From the Tree examines the most intense challenges parents can face: Adapting to a new reality when a child inherits or acquires an identity that makes him or her profoundly different.

We'll find out as we spend the hour with Solomon, winner of the 2013 Anisfield Wolf Book Award for nonfiction.
