    Most of George Barr McCutcheon s shorter works are humorous and snappy This one is an exception.The phrase show, not tell came to mind frequently throughout this novella Many third person paragraphs do nothing but tell the reader about the main character, namely Sedgewick It s a bit like listening to someone you don t know too well telling you about someone you don t know at all If they author had thought to dramatize some of Sedgewick s past activities the narrative wouldn t have been so tedious.Occasionally we have one of the secondary characters revealing, in long stretches of dialogue, details about Sedgewick, which again is telling and boring In fact at times this reads like a dull synopsis.It s not all bad, hence my rating this two stars instead of one A few humorous scenes, plus a couple that arouse sympathy, manage to save this lifeless tale Lack of sympathy is one of the biggest problems here I felt some towards Sedgewick s mother, though she doesn t appear much, and also towards a four year old girl who only appears for about half a page.This author is capable of good things, but this isn t one of them.

    The Butterfly Man is the 14th novel by George Barr McCutcheon Set in circa 1900s America this is the tale of Sedgewick Blynn who fancies himself as quite the ladies man and presents himself as a successful business man.Written published in 1910 the primary mode of transportation is the street car, telephones aren t always reliable and the telegram service is still in full swing.As the novel unfolds we learn Sedgewick isn t the man he outwardly presents himself and the story follows his failure as a businessman, increasing deception, crumbling friendships and manipulation of young ladies.Nothing earth shattering, but a pleasant, albeit short, novel to read.
