Description

The book display’s Chesterton’s characteristic wit as it unfolds the tale of love that blossoms when a young man, Basil Howe, meets the three Grey sisters.

All writers draw heavily upon their own experience and in doing so often include much autobiographical material. Basil Howe likewise offers many clues to Chesterton’s own life and character. To expand upon this autobiographical aspect, the present volume also contains a curious piece composed by the young Chesterton and his friends of the Junior Debating Club: Our Future Prospects.

Denis J. Conlon, whose detective work led to the discovery of the book and whose introduction gives vital background information, will speak.
