John Schwartz: Oddly Normal: One Man’s Struggle to Help Their Teenage Son Come to Terms with His Sexuality

New York Times national correspondent John Schwartz got the call every parent prays never to receive: his thirteen-year old son Joe was hospitalized following a failed suicide attempt. The attempt followed Joe’s disclosure to his schoolmates that he was gay. Oddly Normal is a story told with love and humor of how John and his wife Jeanne learned to advocate for the son they love. Schwartz includes chapters devoted to scientific and legal issues about gay teens and suicide risk.
