This week’s Friday Mystery Author was G.K. Chesterton, the rotund English writer of the early twentieth century. If you haven’t read Chesterton, start with his The Man Who Was Thursday, a nutty Christian apologia. Chesterton regularly crossed swords with George Bernard Shaw; it’s a shame he’s not here today to spar with Christopher Hitchens.
Our excerpt was from Chesterton’s The Everlasting Man, of which more soon.
As always, every Friday we post an excerpt from a more or less obscure author and challenge all comers to identify the source. Have a good week, and stop by again soon.
