The 11th and most controversial book by acclaimed lesbian writer Sarah Schulman, available for the first time in paperback. Stew is a 15-year -old boy who goes online looking for an older man to have sex with. But when his boyfriend is arrested in an Internet paedophilia sting, Stew's life is exposed to his family and town. Devasted by these revelations, and left to fend for himself, he ends up committing murder. Daring in its themes, The Child is a powerful indictment of sex panic in the USA and a plaintive meditation on isolation and desire.
