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.
