Product Description

In 1911, G. K. Chesterton published this firstcollection of twelve short stories featuring FatherBrown, a priest-turned-detective who combinesphilosophical and spiritual reasoning with scientificobservation to solve crimes. In doing so, Chesterton laidthe foundation for future fictional detectives, such asHercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Ellery Queen, and NeroWolfe.

Unlike other writers of his time, who concoctedoutlandish crimes and intricate puzzles for theprotagonist to solve, Chesterton pioneered the cozymystery, narrowing the scope of the investigation tolimited time, limited space, and a limited number ofsuspects, with all the clues revealed to the reader as wellas to the detective.

Author Bio

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874And#8211;1936) was an English writer, philosopher, satirist, and social critic. During his lifetime, the prolific Chesterton wrote eighty books, several hundred poems, some two hundred short stories, four thousand essays, and several plays. He was also known as a strong debater and Christian apologist. He often took on what he considered to be the flawed philosophy of modernism found in the writings of his good friends Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw. It was Shaw who once referred to Chesterton in Time magazine as "a man of colossal genius." Chesterton's writings consistently displayed wit and a sense of humor. His ingenious use of paradox in his commentaries on the leading political, economic, philosophical, and theological beliefs of his day makes his writings as relevant today as they were a century ago.
