Author Bio
G. K. Chesterton
Despite the fact that he authored over 100 books, Chesterton considered himself to be primarily a journalist, and he wrote thousands of articles for London newspapers and magazines. With an enormous body of non-fiction writing in his oeuvre, Chesterton wrote fearlessly and with great passion on matters of religion, philosophy, politics, and modern social issues. He was considered by many of his peers, including George Bernard Shaw, to be a man of great genius. But Chesterton is most popularly known as an author of mysteries--the Father Brown series, "The Man Who Was Thursday", "The Man Who Knew Too Much", among others. An admirer of Poe and Dickens, Chesterton in turn influenced such authors as John Dickson Carr, Jorge Luis Borges, Kingsley Amis, and Dorothy H. Sayers.
