An entertaining collection drawn from G. K. Chesterton’s
early years as a newspaper columnist
This compilation of “fleeting sketches,” written by G. K.
Chesterton while he was a columnist for the Daily News,
contains the humor, foresight, and intellectual curiosity that
quickly made the young writer a household name throughout London. A
tribute to the playfulness of Chesterton’s spirit, Tremendous
Trifles contains such gems as “An Accident,” in which the
author crashes an omnibus into a hansom cab, and “The Advantages of
Having One Leg,” a charmingly thorough investigation of optimism
Fans of Chesterton’s most famous works—from the Father Brown
Stories to Heretics and Orthodoxy—will delight in the
cleverness and invigorating wit of Tremendous Trifles.
