Description

Widely considered as Chesterton's masterpiece, "The Man Who Was Thursday" (1908) defies classification. Subtitled "A Nightmare" by Chesterton, on one level it is a fast-moving and surreal detective story. This critical edition includes several short related pieces, "A Picture of Tuesday", "Introduction to the Book of Job", and "The Diabolist", as well as a map of contemporary London and detailed explanatory notes.show more
