From the winner of the National Book Award and the National Books Critics’ Circle Award—and one of the most original thinkers of our time—“Andrew Solomon’s magisterial Far and Away collects a quarter-century of soul-shaking essays” (Vanity Fair). Far and Away chronicles Andrew Solomon’s writings about places undergoing seismic shifts—political, cultural, and spiritual. From his stint on the barricades in Moscow in 1991, when he joined artists in resisting the coup whose failure ended the Soviet Union, his 2002 account of the rebirth of culture in Afghanistan following the fall of the Taliban, his insightful appraisal of a Myanmar seeped in contradictions as it slowly, fitfully pushes toward freedom, and many other stories of profound upheaval, this book provides a unique window onto the very idea of social change. With his signature brilliance and compassion, Solomon demonstrates both how history is altered by individuals, and how personal identities are altered when governments alter. A journalist and essayist of remarkable perception and prescience, Solomon captures the essence of these cultures. Ranging across seven continents and twenty-five years, these “meaty dispatches…are brilliant geopolitical travelogues that also comprise a very personal and reflective resume of the National Book Award winner’s globe-trotting adventures” (Elle). Far and Away takes a magnificent journey into the heart of extraordinarily diverse experiences: “You will not only know the world better after having seen it through Solomon’s eyes, you will also care about it more” (Elizabeth Gilbert).

Wie geht man damit um, wenn die eigenen Kinder ganz anders sind als man selbst, was bedeutet das für sie und ihre Familien? Und wie akzeptieren wir und unsere Gesellschaft außergewöhnliche Menschen? Ein eindrucksvolles Buch über das Elternsein, über die Kraft der Liebe, aber auch darüber, was unsere Identität ausmacht. Der Bestsellerautor Andrew Solomon hat mit über 300 Familien gesprochen, deren Kinder außergewöhnlich oder hochbegabt sind, die das Down-Syndrom haben oder an Schizophrenie leiden, Autisten, taub oder kleinwüchsig sind. Ihre Geschichten sind einzigartig, doch ihre Erfahrungen des „Andersseins“ sind universell. Ihr Mut, ihre Lebensfreude und ihr Glück konfrontieren uns mit uns selbst und lassen niemanden unberührt. »Solomon hat eine Ideengeschichte geschrieben, die zur Grundlage einer Charta der psychologischen Grundrechte des 21. Jahrhunderts werden könnte... Erkenntnisse voller Einsicht, Empathie und Klugheit.« Eric Kandel »Das vielleicht größte Geschenk dieses monumentalen, so faktenreichen wie anrührenden Werks besteht darin, dass es zum permanenten Nachdenken anregt.« Philip Gourevitch »Dieses Buch schießt einem Pfeil um Pfeil ins Herz.« The New York Times »Dies ist eines der außergewöhnlichsten Bücher, die ich in letzter Zeit gelesen habe: mutig, einfühlsam und zutiefst menschlich... Seine Geschichten sind von meisterhafter Feinfühligkeit und Klarheit.« Siddhartha Mukherjee, Autor von ›Der König aller Krankheiten‹

Threads of magical realism, fabulism, and personal surrealism are woven together in this collection of William Nixon’s current work. Country folk dance on the surface of a lake, dragons range over mountaintops, a man becomes a deer, a man and a woman cross the southern United States in a drift boat on a river named The Big Time River of Bounty, and Civil War soldiers troop through the pages as well. His poems and songs supply a flow of personally charged, imaginative narratives that multiply throughout this book
