An entertaining collection drawn from G. K. Chesterton’s early years as a newspaper columnist
This compilation of “fleeting sketches,” written by G. K. Chesterton while he was a columnist for the Daily News, contains the humor, foresight, and intellectual curiosity that quickly made the young writer a household name throughout London. A tribute to the playfulness of Chesterton’s spirit, Tremendous Trifles contains such gems as “An Accident,” in which the author crashes an omnibus into a hansom cab, and “The Advantages of Having One Leg,” a charmingly thorough investigation of optimism and pessimism.
Fans of Chesterton’s most famous works—from the Father Brown Stories to Heretics and Orthodoxy—will delight in the cleverness and invigorating wit of Tremendous Trifles.
