Flamboyant: A Novel

Portada
Macmillan, 1999 M10 29 - 256 páginas

When Chana Landau begins her job as a teacher at Harvey Milk High School, she leaves the protection of her traditional Orthodox Jewish enclave in Brooklyn for a school that embodies everything she has been forbidden to experience. In a hostile classroom filled with sexually "different" teens, street kids, and drug addicts, Chana's one support is Flamboyant, a fifteen-year-old prostitute and an accomplished writer. Flamboyant is an unforgettable novel of cultural difference, friendship, and faith.
