Seth Summary

Seth is raised in a Catholic household in Indiana, the descendant of farmers and factory workers. He wants to study the liberal arts; his father wants him to go into factory work. Seth's mother is gone from cancer, and so is his hope of pursuing that dream. His mother, while supportive, was an ardent Catholic and lived her life according to the Church. His father is very conservative, and has no idea his son is a liberal. Seth is also gay, and was taken advantage of by a Catholic priest.

He discovers he is gay when he dates a girl named Janet, whom he does not find sexually attractive. He finds other boys attractive instead. He breaks up with Janet, using his mother's cancer as an excuse. He meets a boy named Loren, who is well-versed in the arts.
