Here is a special two-in-one book that is both by G.K. Chesterton and about Chesterton. This volume offers an irresistible opportunity to see who this remarkable man really was. Chesterton was one of the most stimulating and well-loved writers of the 20th century. His 100 books, and hundreds of essays and columns on a great variety of themes have made G.K. Chesterton the most widely quoted writers of modern times.
Here is Chesterton in his own words, in a book he preferred not to write, but did so near the end of his life after much insistence by friends and admirers.
According to critic Sydney Dark, “Perhaps the happiest thing that happened in Gilbert Chesterton’s extraordinarily happy life was that his autobiography was finished a few weeks before his death. It is a stimulating, exciting, tremendously interesting book. It is a draught, indeed, several draughts one after the other of human and literary champagne.”
Full of Chesterton’s wonderful wit and wisdom, with some 40 rare photos, this book will be greatly desired by Chesterton fans, as well as by anyone interested in learning more about this colorful and brilliant man.
Gilbert Keith Chesterton was one of the most prolific authors of modern times, having written some 100 books on many topics including philosophy, theology, poetry, literature, fiction and history.
