Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) was an English journalist, poet, biographer, historian, debater, radio personality, and novelist who wrote more than 100 books on a wide variety of subjects. He is best known for his beloved Father Brown series of detective stories and The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare, his genre-defying masterpiece that centers on poet-turned-detective Gabriel Syme in turn-of-the-century London as he infiltrates and pursues members of an anarchists’ society who call themselves by the names of the days of the week. Button your frock coat and hold tight to your bowler hat as Chesterton plunges you through philosophical discourse, surreal allegory, metaphysical thriller, detective farce, dystopian fairy tale, and gothic romance in a madcap rollick that is, above all, wildly entertaining!
