Tempe, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/11/2014 -- On February 12, 2014, at 1 pm Pacific/4 pm Eastern, Andrew Solomon will be interviewed on the Authentic Living show about his NY Times bestselling book, Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity.

Andrew Solomon, bestselling author, lecturer on psychology, politics, and the arts, winner of the National Book Award and an activist in LBBT rights, mental health and the arts, is coming to the Authentic Living show to discuss his latest book: Fart from the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity. The show’s host, Andrea Mathews, is happy to bring this discussion of differentness and its challenge to all of us, to the Authentic Living Show.

Andrew Solomon’s 2012 book, Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity, has been praised by many notables editors and authors for its compassionate, intimate view of differentness and how it impacts those to whom it calls for patient and loving relationship. It is a NY Times Bestseller and was chosen as among the New York Times Ten Best Books of 2012, also receiving Best Book awards from Publishers Weekly, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, Time Magazine, Salon.com/Laura Miller, and Kirkus. It also received the New York Times Book Review Notable Book of 2012, BuzzFeed Book of the Year; Economist Book of the year; and a Cleveland Plain-dealer Book of the year. The book also won the National Book Critics Circle award for nonfiction, the J. Anthony Lukas Award; the Anisfield-Wolf Award; the Books for a Better Life Award; Yale University’s Research Advocacy Award; the GRASP Friend and Benefactor award; the Fountain House Humanitarian Award; the Mike Wallace Award of the University of Michigan; the Columbia Gray Matters Award; and the Distinquished Achievement Award in Nonfiction of the National Council on Crime and Eelinquency.

Solomon is also the author of the NY Times Bestseller, The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression (2001), which also received many prestigious awards, as well as The Irony Tower: Soviet Artists in a Time of Glasnost (1991), and his recently reissued first novel, A Stone Boat (1994).

Far from the Tree has been called “A bold and unambiguous call to redefine how we view difference…. A stunning work of scholarship and compassion” by Carmela Ciuraru, USA Today. That is the reason that Andrea Mathews has selected this author for interview on the Authentic Living Show. “In order to live authentically,” says the show’s host, “we have to be able to accept and even love and cherish differentness—both our own and that of others.” This groundbreaking book, offers the host an opportunity to get definitive information from Solomon, which can offer listeners an intimate look at how differentness is currently calling us to transform our view of ourselves and our world.

Mathews is an author in her own right, of three books: Restoring My Soul: A Workbook for Finding and Living the Authentic Self (2007), The Law Of Attraction: The Soul’s Answer To Why It Isn’t Working And How It Can (2011), and Inhabiting Heaven NOW: The Answer to Every Moral Dilemma Ever Posed (Dec. 13, 2013). She is a practicing psychotherapist, speaker, corporate trainer and radio host. Mathews has published several articles in spiritual and informational magazines around the world. She served as the Editor of two small literary presses and has published several poems in other literary magazines. She presents keynote addresses, workshops and seminars for groups, corporations and organizations large and small. She says, “It seems like my basic message both for myself and my world is LIVE, live life to the fullest from the deepest and most profound places in yourself!”

The Authentic Living show is based in the same principles as her first book, and from the very beginning, Mathews has held a clear intention to offer listeners a clear pathway to the Authentic Self. With that goal in mind, she has interviewed some of the world’s most profound and prolific spiritual leaders, bestselling authors and entertainers. People like Marianne Williamson, Tom Shadyac, Rosanne Cash, Gary Zukav, Dr. Brian Weiss, Thomas Moore, Caroline Myss, Byron Katie, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Dr. Judith Orloff, Neale Donald Walsch, Joan Borysenko, Bruce Lipton, Dan Millman, Julia Cameron, John Holland and many more. Each one of these people brings a special message about how to live more authentically. The show has topped over 150,000 listeners.

The show has been noticed by Harpo Studios for its quality of interviews and number of listeners and was chosen and honored to run clips of Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday series on OWN (the Oprah Winfrey Network).
