Gilbert Keith Chesterton is well-known for some of his lighter works, particularly the famous Father Brown mystery series, many of which have been turned into a television show. He is also known for such nonfiction works as St. Francis of Assisi and The Everlasting Man. However, The Napoleon of Notting Hill was his first novel, a piece of what might be called science fiction (insofar as it is about the future), but which is really more an exploration of timeless concepts than of temporal situations. Long before Orwell made the year 1984 famous, Chesterton set this great story in that year, exploring notions of local patriotism, war and peace, and what happens when a man "finds a thing to love." A humorous, yet deep novel worth reading. Purchase in Print | PDF (free) | HTML (free).
