We’ve published five of Sarah’s novels, including Rat Bohemia, one of the “100 Best LGBT Novels of All Time” (Publishing Triangle); this is her first non-fiction book with Arsenal but she is a highly respected essayist and speaker on a wide range of political and social issues.
A book on the cultural phenomenon of blame, cruelty, and scapegoating as a power tactic in a range of relationships, from the most intimate (partners, friends) to the most broad (cultural groups, nations). It discusses how those in power positions exacerbate and manipulate fear of the “other” to achieve their aims.
The book also looks at its subject through the lens of technology, and how social media and email have made our interactions with one another more impersonal and thus more subject to misunderstanding and abuse.
This book takes a highly personal approach to what on the surface is a complex subject, but at its heart it is about how we as a culture need to treat each other with respect and dignity.
Sarah will tour nationally, including speaking engagements in theaters and at colleges, and we will be hiring a freelance publicist to handle media.
