Description

Edward C. Patterson has been writing novels, short fiction, poetry and drama his entire life, always seeking the emotional . Cutting the Cheese reminds me of a good old fashioned stage play, very fast paced and irresistibly witty.

Edward C. Patterson has been writing novels, short fiction, poetry and drama his entire life, always seeking the emotional core of any story he tells. With his eighth novel, The Jade Owl, he combines an imaginative touch with his life long devotion to China and its history. He has earned an MA in Chinese History from Brooklyn College with further post graduate work at Columbia University. Vivid characters take the stage, and in the middle of all the fussing and commotion there is Luke, his life coming to a complete stand still when he sets eyes on this complete stranger. Patterson has been writing novels, short fiction, poetry and drama his entire life, always seeking the emotional core . Edward C. Patterson's CUTTING THE CHEESE, a lighthearted look at Luke Oliver, a shy man who has just come out of the closet and attends a Gay and Lesbian Activist Association meeting/dinner party, could easily be adapted into a stage play.

Poor Luke Oliver. He is young. He is successful. He has just come out of the closet and has been invited to a meeting of the Gay and Lesbian Activist Association of New Birch and Sipsboro (GLAABS).
GLAABS is gay political causus that while the gays and lesbians butt heads, the newbie members clearly go to the heirarchy of GLAABS by doing the meanial work of cutting and setting up cheese and goodies served at the meetings. It is not a pretty job, but you surely can get the scoop on all the members of the group. And a room filled with so many types of cheese gets pretty ripe after a while.
Luke invited a date, but he will be late. In the meantime, he sees someone he has admired from afar.
The hilarious banter between Gays and Lesbians will have you laughing out loud, as you will feel how out of place Luke is starting to feel.
Perhaps just having Luke be Luke and not what an organization of clubbers turned partygoers want him to be would be the way to go. But Luke, like all of us, straight or gay, needs to find out for himself.
Although I am into Mr. Patterson's wonderful Jade Owl Series and the companion Sister series, there has never been a book I've read of his that is not written to the T's and whatever the genre plain wonderfully good reading.
An interesting experience to those of us uninitiated, but you'll love all the characters and be able to say you know some of them in your office, or church or, oh my! another organization you belong to!
A fun read!

I have to agree with other reviews....Edward C. Patterson's CUTTING THE CHEESE, a lighthearted look at Luke Oliver, a shy man who has just come out of the closet and attends a Gay and Lesbian Activist Association meeting/dinner party, could easily be adapted into a stage play.

Patterson's cleverness and sharp wit shines in this fast paced novel. There is plenty of cheese to keep the reader crack-ing up!

A good comedy,short read. The characters what can I say we're wonderful. Also we have a love story among all the characters, with Luke, and Branch. A good story. I enjoyed it.

Cutting the Cheese reminds me of a good old fashioned stage play, very fast paced and irresistibly witty. Vivid characters take the stage, and in the middle of all the fussing and commotion there is Luke, his life coming to a complete stand still when he sets eyes on this complete stranger. Or should I say the stranger sets eyes on him ?
Great fun !

Being straight, this book provided a whole new insight for me into the gay and lesbian world. Someone close to me, I suspect is gay. I realize that it is scary coming out, and taking those first steps into a new world. I really felt for the newbie, not knowing who to trust, who would be a reliable friends, and who was foe. For me, it was hard to keep track of so many characters, but that is probably my own problem. :) All in all, a fun read, with interesting characters, and definitely a broadening of my horizons since this is not usually my type of book. But I believe in supporting the indie author, and I hope many others will too!

Added later - I have to agree with some of the reviews after mine. This would be a fantastic stage production! The audience would be in stitches.

I have mixed feelings on this book. The story line of Luke's coming out was well done. The image of him sitting in the dark trying to work up the nerve to call a gay support line made me want to hug him. However, the older queens were just over the top. They were snippy and catty and flowery and pretty much gayer than anyone in my circle of older queens - they, and the lesbians - were a distraction.

In the kindle edition, there are a couple formatting issues, but nothing to get overly excited about. Overall, I enjoyed the book but wanted it to be tighter.

I actually feel bad writing this. There was nothing about this book that I liked. Hated every bit of it.

It was supposed to be funny, I guess it's not my type of humor. It was supposed to be a coming out story but I didn't think it went deep enough into that part of the story or character.

The whole book is about the happenings at one social gathering and there was nothing special about any of it. Those events could have happened at anyone's party. I also didn't like the writing style. Within one paragraph the author will use casual slang language giving an "I'm hip and cool" impression and the next sentence will be filled with the check-your-thesaurus words giving an "am I impressing you yet" feel.

It just wasn't for me.
