Short biography
G K Chesterton has been described as one of the most unjustly neglected writers of our time. Born in 1874 -when Kensington still formed part of Middlesex-, he became a journalist and later began writing books and pamphlets. His work includes novels, literary and social criticism, political papers and spiritual essays in a style characterised by enormous wit, paradox, humility and wonder. He converted to Catholicism in 1922 and he explores the nature of spirituality in many of his books and essays, including the mighty Orthodoxy.
