Part District 9, part Lost in Translation, part Stranger in a Strange Land.
TRIPTYCH was nominated for two Lambda Literary Awards and named one of Publisher's Weekly's Best Books of the Year.
Kalp is a widower, burdened with an unimaginable grief, who escaped his dying world with nothing but his own life and a half-finished toy for a child that will now never be born.
Gwen is a language expert covertly recruited for a United Nations initiative to integrate a ship-full of alien refugees into life on earth. She becomes Kalp's teammate and lifeline.
Basil is the engineer who lives with, and loves them, both. But he has no idea how to defend his new relationship against the ire and condemnation of a violently intolerant world.
TRIPTYCH is a poignant, character-driven science-fiction story about tolerance, love, loss, and the desperate attempt to find connection in a world that no longer makes sense.
"I couldn't put it down. It's a very impressive first novel and if Ms. Frey continues to do with science fiction what she's done in this book she might single-handedly be credited with reviving the entire genre. Bravo! Encore, encore!"
-Todd McCaffrey, The Dragonriders of Pern
