Widely considered Chesterton's masterpiece, The Man Who Was Thursday (subtitled 'A Nightmare' by Chesterton) is rooted firmly in its time and place - a phantasmagoric turn-of-the-century London where police are poets and anarchists abound.
Our hero, Police Detective (and poet) Gabriel Syme, is chosen by Scotland Yard to undertake a top secret undercover mission: he must infiltrate the Central European Council of Anarchists. Each of the seven-member Council goes by the name of a weekday, and Syme himself is elected 'Thursday'. Syme must avoid discovery, undo his many colleagues, and save the world. But the further he is drawn into this world beyond humanity, the more he fears the worst - what if the council are on the side of right?

G K Chesterton

Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London, England, in 1874. He went on to study art at the Slade School, and literature at University College in London. Chesterton wrote a great deal of poetry, as well as works of social and literary criticism. Among his most notable books are The Man Who Was Thursday, a metaphysical thriller, and The Everlasting Man, a history of humankind's spiritual progress. After Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922, he wrote mainly on religious topics such as Orthodoxy and Heretics. Chesterton is most known for creating the famous priest-detective character Father Brown, who first appeared in The Innocence of Father Brown. Chesterton died in 1936 at the age of 62.
