Overview
British writer GILBERT KEITH CHESTERTON (1874 1936) expounded prolifically about his wide-ranging philosophies he is impossible to categorize as liberal or conservative, for instance across a wide variety of avenues: he was a literary critic, historian, playwright, novelist, columnist, and poet. His witty, humorous style earned him the title of the prince of paradox, and his works 80 books and nearly 4,000 essays remain among the most beloved in the English language Considered by many readers to be his most underrated work, this 1914 novel remains full of import for readers almost a century later... and is still a rollicking good read. In a future Britain where a weirdly liberal form of Islam has come to dominate the culture, political schemer Lord Ivywood has set about to ban alcohol. In this fray come boisterous Irishman Patrick Dalroy and English pub owner Humphrey Pump, who set off on a round-the-country tour with their mobile pub, a flying inn, in an attempt to undermine the new prohibition. Outrageous and thoughtful in equal measure, as was Chesterton s trademark, this is a wickedly witty sendup of political correctness, Puritanism, religious sanctimony, and oppressive laws, as well as a startling depiction of the cultural clash between Eastern spirituality and Western ideals that we re still contending with today."
