Truly Disturbing, Irresistibly Unsettling, Eerily Humorous

The “Opening Lines” section of the Summer, 2010 Kenyon Alumni News, features the first few sentences of  “A Friend of Bill Gillen” from The Butterfly Collector by Fred McGavran, winner of the St. Lawrence Book Award. In the review that follows the opening lines, the book as a whole is called “truly disturbing”, “irresistibly unsettling”, and “eerily humorous”.

You can get your copy of The Butterfly Collector from the BLP website or from Amazon.
