    For Chesterton fans, this book is essential for your library. Conlon is a Chestertonian scholar, who has added depth and breadth to the knowledge of Chesterton with this new biography. Denis Conlon is a frequent writer on Chesterton, and knows his subject better than most. He’s interviewed the last few living souls who met and knew Chesterton. He’s unearthed letters, diaries, poems, and partially written novels which have been hidden from the world till now.

    He takes on critics by discussing Chesterton’s sainthood, pro and con. He Includes photographs that have never been seen before. He includes letters their secretary Dorothy Collins sent to her mother during their many travels: a great peek into the domestic life of Gilbert and Frances.

    If before your image of G.K. Chesterton was two dimensional, after reading this you will see Gilbert in 3D. Order your book today!
