Oddly normal : one family's struggle to help their teenage son come to terms with his sexuality Author: John Schwartz Publisher: New York, N. Three years ago, John Schwartz, a national correspondent at The New York Times, got the call that every parent hopes never to receive: his thirteen-year-old son, Joe, was in the hospital following a suicide attempt.
