I love this photo, taken last night in London, with the great Andrew Solomon, who'd just won The Wellcome Prize for his book FAR FROM THE TREE.

And just a heads up, you guys — Andrew gave the most transcendent TED talk this year. He spoke about difference, identity, family, love and belonging. (I was openly sobbing in the audience, let me confess.) Rumor is, the talk is going to be released in a few weeks. So stand by! When it's out, I'll be the first to spread the news…

Man, there are some talented and angelic souls in this world,
