What the Critics Say

"Chesterton's vigour, idiosyncrasies, optimism, puns, and paradoxes celebrate the oddity of life and the diversity of people and places with a peculiar and at times exhilarating violence." (The Concise Oxford Companion to English Literature)

    "Great for classroom use"

    I teach a course on detective fiction in high school. This story was in the curriculum so I decided to play it in class and stop and discuss if every 10 or 15 minutes. The kids loved it! It made an incredible difference from having them read it out loud or assigning it for homework and led to two great classes and some great discussion and writing.
