Kevin Borden has a secret, and that secret is about to shake the world around him - a tame and suburban world ruled by his widow mother, Sarah and peppered by his study-mate, Louis. Teenagers sometimes do the darndest things, but in Kevin and Louis' case, it's a stroke of wisdom wrapped in fool's gold. In a time not so long ago, in the days of JIM CROW and NO IRISH NEED APPLY signage, the world made it clear to those regarded as the fringe. "Stay away." To those who know no better - or perhaps know best, such lines are only meant to be crossed, or why else would they be drawn. No Irish Need Apply takes a close to the bone view of the actual emergence from the closet - the pain, but also the importance. Dedicated to PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), this fast moving book was selected Book of the Month (June 2009) by Booz Allen Hamilton's Diversity reader group.

For high school boys who suffered the exposure of their sexual orientation, it in all probability meant brutal consequences from fellow students.

No irish need apply (nina). Anti-Irish sentiment to a spectrum of hostile attitudes toward Irish people. This dislike or hatred of Irish people and their diaspora may be based on several things. Irish were discriminated against socially & politically for refusing to surrender their Catholic religion. After 1860 many Irish sang songs about signs reading "HELP WANTED - NO IRISH NEED APPLY". These signs had a deep impact on the Irish sense of discrimination.

No Irish need apply turned up at least 29 times in Times classifieds advertising for jobs, and the sentiment was wider than the frequency of those exact words. A variation, Irish need not apply, turned up at least 7 times, and there were other examples, from No Irishman need apply to Irishmen need not apply, to the simple, brutal No Irish. Hundreds of other classified ads specified that job applicants be Protestant, or American, effectively excluding Irish-Catholic immigrants. Whether the exact phrase No Irish need apply itself was ubiquitous, the sentiment certainly was, as a row.

I downloaded the book because it popped up on a Facebook page that offers free books. I thought it was a historic novel. >grins<
Anyways, if you have a teen or any family member who might be in the closet and be nervous to talk about being gay out of fear, this book would probably be a good encouragement. The book it well written, sensitive an careing, outlining the struggles I imagine a lot of the gay community faces when deciding to tell their secret. I read it front to back. No, had I known what it was about I would not have downloaded it, but I'm glad the title was misleading. I don't regret having read it.

This sweet story of first love kept my attention. Highschool boys, Louis and Kevin, are attracted to each other. Louis has already been identified as homosexual and has the bruises to prove it. Kevin is in the closet, but can't deny his attraction to his study mate. Soon, they become a couple, but not in public.

In a single up-yours moment, the boys attend the prom as a couple. Now, they have to face their respective mothers--good Irish Catholics--who aren't exactly happy their sons have found their soulmates.

Still, we appreciate Kevin's mom for going through her stages of anger, hostility, why me?, and finally acceptance of Louis, a boy she already liked as her son's friend. Louis' mother is not as forgiving, but we, as readers, hope she'll find it in her heart to love her son no matter what.

This is a nice YA LGBT with moderate swearing, but no explicit scenes.

Downside: Mr. Patterson, please find yourself a good proofreader. Your language is so lyrical and imaginative, it's disconcerting to run across incorrect words and typos.

"NO IRISH NEED APPLY" is the fourth book by a masterful Author, Mr. Edward C. Patterson, that I have purchased on Amazon.

This is a touching account of two high school boys who discover their sexuality in a time when homosexuality was scorned and hidden away. For high school boys who suffered the exposure of their sexual orientation, it in all probability meant brutal consequences from fellow students. Both boys are being raised by single mothers. Both are Irish; not fersh off the boat, but second or third generation living in Linden, New Jersey. Kevin Borden's mother dotes on him, while Louis Lonnegan's mother remains wrapped in her grief of her husband's early demise.

Louis and Kevin meet as "study partners", Kevin being the one to help Louis get a passing grade in American History. It isn't long before the two boys realize they have more in common than American History. Soon, their friendship becomes the gossip of the school. Soon, they beome inseparable, and "first love" blooms.

The boys are faced with many trials and tribulations. First trying to remain "in-the-closet" and keep their secret from their mothers as well as their classmates.
The high school Prom changes everything; and their secret is laid bare by the bold decision made. Their public display at the Prom ends with a little physical attack from a couple of the 'jocks' and a jealous girl. The boys brave through and hold their heads high.

The gossip spread like a wild brush fire. How will Mrs. Borden and Mrs. Lonnegan handle the shame of having "queer sons"?

This book is well worth reading. I have no doubt that every reader will see someone they know; a friend, perhaps a family member. It is a touching story with a well proused lesson for everyone.

"I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free. Mankind will surely not deny to Harold Skimpole what it concedes to the butterflies." -Bleak House, by Charles Dickens-

No Irish Need Apply is a brilliantly written novel most worthy to sit next to some of the greatest writers. It speaks from the very soul of the author to the soul of the reader.

Two boys of Irish background know inside they are different but not exactly sure if they are gay, and certainly don't know if they want others to know. This keeps them alienated from the rest of the world until they discover one another. They are not products of perversion or trauma. They come from Irish Catholic background.

Sarah, Kevin's mother, pushes the boys to each take a date to the prom together. "Make it a double date," she said.

Rumors around the school already have it that the two boys are gay, but the prom night may show a spectacular come out for both.

Edward C. Patterson knocks down the barriers to see the superficial discrimination of gays without knowing who they are or judging them by a stereotype and this enlightening novel, like Butterflies Are Free, shows the world of a gay as seen through the eyes of a young person who is gay. Open your mind. Be enlightened to this. It has an invaluable lesson.

What humbled me about this tale was Sarah was presented up front as though she would be someone who would have been heart broken to hear that her child was gay. Perhaps the type (stereotype that is) who would not accept Kevin or Louis for who they were. Yet, the reader finds the reason why you can't judge the book by its cover--no matter if you are gay or straight! And it shows the real reason why they are accepted. Sarah has a true love for everyone--not just her own son but someone else's son. Are you a parent? How would you judge your son and the other man in his life? It hits both audiences and the truth is the truth!

The point is well taken and the boys are fascinating their audiences with the wonder of discovering who they were. (This is not a sexually explicit book.)

Edward C. Patterson leaves a mark of enlightenment on the reader with his beautifully delivered narrative prose.
