Chesterton's earliest collection of essays covers a wide range of topics, from detective stories and penny dreadfuls to skeletons, slang, and patriotism. Each subject is addressed with his characteristic combination of wit, paradox, and good humor, as he defends seemingly harmless subjects only to reveal many hidden assumptions and dogmas of his time.
