Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London into a middle-class family. His father, Edward, was a member of the well-known Kensington auctioneer and estate agents business of Chesterton and his mother, Marie-Louise, was of Franco-Scottish ancestry. He did not learn to read until he was over eight and one of his teachers told him, "If we opened your head, we should not find brain but only a lump of white fat". Chesterton studied at University College and the Slade School of Art (1893-96). In 1922 Chesterton was converted from Anglicanism to Roman Catholicism, and thereafter he wrote several theologically oriented works.

THE INNOCENCE OF FATHER BROWN (191 KB)
Fiction, mystery and detective stories
This is the first book of G.K. Chesterton's ingenious, thoughtful and lyrically written mystery short stories featuring the unassuming little priest who solves crimes by imagining himself inside the mind and soul of the criminal and understanding his motives. The stories are full of paradox, spiritual insight, and "Chestertonian fantasy," or seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary. Father Brown was gentle, quiet cleric, with ever-furled umbrella and round face, and his mission is to identify the culprit so that he/she might repent and save his/her soul. Among his opponents is the French jewel thief Flambeau, who reforms and becomes a London private investigator, and helps occasionally Father Brown. This character was based on father John O'Connor, Chesterton's friend, who in 1922 received the author into the Roman Catholic Church. This book has been included among the 100 best crime and mystery books ever published.
