Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in Kensington in 1874. He was a late developer, only reaching adolescence in his late teens, and this gave him a somewhat skewed perspective on life.
What a description! Have you ever wondered what people will write about you when you’re gone?
The quote above is from the blurb in Father Brown: selected stories (published by “Collector’s Library”), which I’m currently reading.
It’s been awhile since I’ve read fiction by Chesterton. In fact, it’s been a long time since I’ve read any fiction! I enjoy the humor and little snatches of Christianity. I also enjoy expanding my vocabulary, since the early 20th century British style offers a few more sophisticated words than my beginning English classes!
