The Flying Inn

In this month’s Quadrant, Hal Colebach reconsiders G.K. Chesterton’s Flying Inn.

Having re-perused that work a few months ago myself (from whence I enthused about it on another forum), I broadly concur with Colebach’s conclusions [that it’s an impressionistic swing at various bits of Whiggery in a rip-roaring fashion rather remniscient of Fielding.]

While I’m a tad peeved at being beaten to the punch in Quadrant, one is nonetheless pleased to see that book taken-up again.

I remain &c.,
Michael T.A. Canaris.
