Living Vicariously: The Best of John Patrick
|Author:||John Butler (Editor), John Patrick|
Unremittingly erotic, as might well be expected from the pen of John Patrick, Living Vicariously contains over twenty-five short stories, including "The Well" for which Patrick won the 1987 PEN American Center writing award (and never-before published by STARbooks Press). In addition to several other previously unpublished stories, Living Vicariously also contains two of "J. P’s" finest novella-length roman à clefs. Living Vicariously was lovingly edited by John Butler, who co-edited the posthumously-released John Patrick editions, Seduced 2 and Wild and Willing. Having also penned three of the biggest-selling single-author titles in STARbooks history, Mr. Butler, in his inimitable style, has tapped into his years of friendship with John Patrick in order to provide the reader with rare glimpses into the everyday and personal life of this most private of writers by way of his (Butler's) fascinating introduction and brief appendages that precede each and every Patrick story.
