The complete adventures of the beloved Clerical sleuth, collected in a single glossy volumeShabby and logging, with a face like a Norfolk dumpling, father Brown makes for a detective very unlikelyBut his innocence is the secret of his success: refusing the scientific method of detection, he adopts a simple sympathetic approach, interpreting every crime as a work of art and every criminal as a man, no worse than himself.This complete edition brings together all of Father Brown’s stories, including two not previously available in Penguin:”The Donnington Case,” in which Chesterton rises to the challenge of solving a murder and mystery half written by someone else (Max Pemberton), and “The Mask of Midas,” which was found in Chesterton’s papers after his death.It also includes an introduction and notes by Michael DHurleyGKChesteron was born in 1874He attended the Slade School of Art, where he appears to have suffered a nervous breakdown, before passing his hand to journalism.A prolific writer throughout his life, his best-known books include Napoleon of Notting Hill (1904), the man who knew too much Much (1922), The Man Who Was Thursday (1908) and Father Brown stories.Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922 and died in 1938Michael DHurley is a lecturer in English at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow College of St. Catharine’s University.He has written extensively on English literature from the 19th century to the present day, with an emphasis on poetry and poetics.His book on Chesterton was published in 2011
