Re: The Short Story Thread
The Strange Crime of John Boulnois (Penguin Mini Modern Classics) by G. K Chesterton
A book with two short stories, the story in the title and The Blue Cross.
I had no idea what kind of writer Chesterton was except knowing vaguely a he wrote an early detective series about a priest,that his name had a classic rep. I wanted to read early 1900s mystery stories, like i want to read Dorothy L. Sayers.
The first story i ever read of G.K Chesterton was just fabulous! It had such wit,awesome different humor,quality characters,fine prose,language. A stronger literary ability than expected.
