    Most of George Barr McCutcheon’s shorter works are humorous and snappy This one is an exceptionThe phrase “show not tell” came to mind freuently 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 tediousOccasionally 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 synopsisIt’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 pageThis author is capable of good things but this isn’t one of them
