Through years of meticulous research and access to the literary estate of G.K. Chesterton, Joseph Pearce presents a major biography of a 20th century literary giant, providing a great deal of important information on GKC never before published. This is a thoroughly readable and delightful biography of a multi-faceted author, artist and debater who loved the friendship of children, idolized his wife and enjoyed great friendships with the likes of Hillaire Belloc, Bernard Shaw and H.G. Wells. Illustrated.

"Pearce has avoided the factual errors and misjudgments made by most earlier biographers, and his research has been meticulous, with the result that this study contains a great deal of important material never before published."
- The G.K. Chesterton Study Centre
(London)

"The most important work on Chesterton in the last 50 years."
- Aidan Mackey, Chesterton Literary Estate

"Biography at its best. Rarely has a biography left me feeling so close to the subject. Pearce writes beautifully clean and lucid prose. A book I will read many times."
- Walter Hooper, Author, A Guide to C.S. Lewis

Joseph Pearce is a British writer and author who spent five years researching and writing this biography. He credits Chesterton's writings for his conversion from agnosticism to Catholicism.
