Sensation followed the sudden death of G.K. Chestertonís eccentric sleuth; as well it might, when he sat up in his coffin and applied a little quiet detachment to the incident. But then sensation was implicit in all the cases Father Brown so modestly handled.
These stories have delighted three generations of readers and now, with a sparkling new foreword by Ann Widdecombe, they are set to thrill and entertain a whole new audience.
G K Chesterton
- G K Chesterton has been described as one of the most unjustly neglected writers of our time. Born in 1874, he became a journalist and later began writing books and pamphlets. His work includes novels, literary and social criticism, political papers and spiritual essays in a style characterised by enormous wit, paradox, humility and wonder. He converted to Catholicism in 1922 and he explores the nature of spirituality in many of his books and essays, including the mighty Orthodoxy. Chesterton is one of the few authors who are genuinely timeless and whose work has as much relevance today as when it was written.Ann Widdecombe
- As shadow home secretary from 1998 to 2001, Ann Widdecombe earned a reputation as one of Britainís liveliest and most direct politicians. Her achievements outside politics include becoming a popular novelist, as well as presenting television programmes. Ann Widdecombe, a devout Catholic, has a life-long love for G.K. Chestertonís Father Brown adventures.
