The Back of the World - The troubling genius of G. K. Chesterton.
The title of this post is taken from the title of an essay I recently read in 'The New Yorker'. The author claimed to 'love' Chesterton's writings, and then proceeded to bring in all the left-wing canards against him. You know the drill. 'Chesterton was a fascist', 'Chesterton was an anti-semite'. That sort of thing. The entire essay was proof of the old saying, 'With friends like that, he doesn't need enemies'!
