Book reviews - The Man Who Was Thursday

The Man Who Was Thursday


Author: G. K. Chesterton
"G. K. Chesterton's The Man Who Was Thursday is a wacky, nightmarish, deliriously well-written adventure story for grownups in which nothing is what it seems and everyone wears a mask, whether figurative or literal. It's hard to think of a more thrilling book." -Kate Christensen, TIME Magazine's Summer Reading List 2009.  

The Kindle e-book is FREE when you buy the paperback.
