Product Description

Product Description

Oh, Dainty Triolet is a compilation of three of Edward C. Patterson’s most popular works into an Omnibus Edition comprising Cutting the Cheese, Bobby’s Trace and No Irish Need Apply. Cutting the Cheese is a comic romp through the world of gay activism. Bobby’s Trace is a ghost story with an unusual twist. No Irish Need Apply is a teenage coming of age story in a world fraught with prejudice. All three novellas have been revised and expanded for this edition and are still offered separately as they are a triptych in three different genres.

What reviewers say about these three works:

Cutting the Cheese:

"Edward C Patterson offers a hilarious and engaging look into the challenges and opportunities one faces when coming out."
- Todd Fonseca, TMBOA.com

Bobby's Trace:

"A beautifully drawn exploration of a young man's grief at the loss of his partner and his eventual resumption of life. Quite a few unexpected thrills and chills."
- Sandy Nathan, award-winning author of Numenon

No Irish Need Apply:

"It's not often these days that you come across writing that possesses both the literary beauty of a classic poem with the depth and substance of a contemporary tale. It's a story that lives and breathes.”
- Gregory Bernard Banks, Wheelman Press
