    DescriptionShortlisted for the Lambda Literary Award and the Ferro-Grumley Women's Fiction Award "The Child" is the eleventh and perhaps most controversial book by acclaimed lesbian writer Sarah Schulman, available for the first time in paperback. This novel explores the parameters of queer teen sexuality against a backdrop of hysteria and sanctioned homophobia. Stew is a fifteen-year-old boy who goes online looking for an older man to have sex with. But when his older boyfriend is arrested in an Internet pedophilia sting, his life is exposed to his family and town. Devastated by these revelations and left to fend for himself, he ends up committing murder. Brazen and daring in its themes, "The Child" is a powerful indictment of sex panic in America, and a plaintive meditation on isolation and desire.
