You've heard of Murphy's Law and even thePeter Principle, but here's a new one: Patrick's Law.

His socks willdroop because of a lack of elasticity brought on by age and the larger anklesof his brothers. The youngest will generally never hold an original opinion forfear of being informed he is a klutz by at least one of his brothers. He willalways be referred to as So-and-So's little brother and will NEVER (a) get theSunday funnies first, (b) go anywhere without telling at least two personswhere he is going, or (c) be able to read a comic while seated on the family'sonly commode."Patrick's Corner is a collection of stories about growing upafter World War II in a world where family life, neighborhood interdependence,and nurturing environments were the norm. The author describes how one family'ssteadfast devotion to each other and their foundation of moral values helpedthem surmount the challenges of poverty.Told with the sensitivity of the "baby of the family," thisnostalgic reminiscence is full of warmth, love, growing pains, and thestruggles for survival.

These are wonderful true stories of growing up in the late 40's and 50's in an Irish American household. The Patrick boys were raised by their widowed mother, who provided them with abundant love and unselfish example. They carried this love for one another throughout their childhood and into their adult lives. I cried over many of the tales. It demonstrates that happiness is not about amassing stuff. A lesson we could all use in our "modern" America.
With a great wit Sean Patrick takes us back to life in America in the 1940's-1950's in an Irish Catholic neighborhood. He delights the reader in his tales of his family and how life was for a single mother with five sons . The flavor of Ireland can be seen in the book as names and references to Ireland are made. The reader feels that he is with Sean at both high school and elementary school. Stories make one laugh and cry and I re-read many of them several times. Excellent for reading and re-reading. was rapid in their delivery of this excellent book
I've enjoyed Mr Patrick's writings in "Catholic Digest" for many years; this book has some humorous recollections that I had not read before.
Love all these stories. What a family! The mother was a saint!
Sean shares very interesting and heart warming stories of his family life growing up.Very well written. I could hardly put the book down..
I can count on one hand the titles of the books I have been unable to put down, and this is one of them. I went in search of more when I read Sean Patrick's column in Catholic Digest and found short, but full, chapters in the life of a true boy - basically faithful to his religous upbringing, but full of mischevious adventures. It reminds me of Roald Dahl's book, "Boy" - another I couldn't put down.
sean patrick, if thats his name, wrote a self grandizing piece of dribble. Don't waste your time.
