The most sought after Chesterton novel is BACK IN PRINT AT LAST!!! Follow the adventures of Innocent Smith, the man who breaks into his own home, runs off with his own wife and picnics on the roof. This is the book on how to live Chesterton.

Perhaps the most light-hearted of all Chesterton’s “serious” works, Manalive pits a group of disillusioned young people against Mr. Innocent Smith, a bubbly, high-spirited gentleman who literally falls into their midst. Accused of murder and denounced for repeatedly marrying his wife and attempting to live in various houses (all of which turn out to be his own), Smith prompts his newfound acquaintances to recognize an important idea: that life is worth living.
