9780141193854: The Complete Father Brown Stories

All the Father Brown stories from five classic volumes—in one definitive edition

With his cherubic face and unworldly simplicity, his glasses and huge umbrella, Father Brown is one of the most unforgettable characters in literature.The Complete Father Brown Stories brings together all the stories featuring G. K. Chesterton's amateur sleuth—plus two additional cases, "The Donnington Affair" and "The Mask of Midas," that were discovered in Chesterton's papers after his death. An introduction by Chesterton scholar Michael D. Hurley sheds new light on the beloved detective series.

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. The complete adventures of the well-loved clerical sleuth, collected in one brilliant volume.Shabby and lumbering, with a face like a Norfolk dumpling, Father Brown makes for an improbable super-sleuth. But his innocence is the secret of his success: refusing the scientific method of detection, he adopts instead an approach of simple sympathy, interpreting each crime as a work of art, and each criminal as a man no worse than himself. This complete edition brings together all of the Father Brown stories, including two not previously available in Penguin: The Donnington Affair , in which Chesterton rises to the challenge of solving a murder-mystery half written by someone else (Max Pemberton), and The Mask of Midas , which was found in Chesterton s papers after his death.
