This book contains my first encounter with Chesterton, a brief essay called On Lying in Bed, which I still think one of his best. But when I began this book, although I avidly devour G. s novels, and some of his nonfiction, like Orthodoxy, this one didn't hold me. I returned to it now and then, as one does, after reading rather more gripping reads. Then its magic kicked in, and in my view, some of the later essays, particularly those that are travelogues, are the best. Chesterton, Christendom in Dublin. The G.
