Publisher's Description

Part detective story, part surreal thriller, and part

social commentary, The Man Who Was Thursday

is a masterpiece of literary fiction by the brilliant G. K.

Chesterton. The story centers around seven anarchists

in turn-of-the-century London who call themselves

by the days of the week. Fearing an impending act of

terrorism, Gabriel Syme is sent by Scotland Yard to

infiltrate their ranks by becoming "Thursday." Elected

undercover into the Central European Council of

anarchists, Syme must avoid discovery and save the

world from future bombings.

Beyond the excitement of an elephant chase, duels,

elaborate disguises, and a hot-air balloon pursuit

through the streets of London, Chesterton is most

interested in the battle of ideas. Indeed, his real agenda

is to expose the moral relativism and parlor nihilism for

the devils he believed them to be in the world of his day.

Chesterton's classic novella tackles anarchy, social order,

God, peace, war, religion, and human nature, somehow

managing to combine them all into a delightful tale full

of biting social commentary that is still relevant today.
