The book sounds good. However the pr copy sounds of the sort Chesterton might skewer:

"The variety of topics are astounding."

Astounding? LOL.

Joe:

I suspect you are right. However, the other options were (pen firmly in cheek):

• Awesomelicious
• Super-über spectacular
• Mega-sized and magnificent
• Outrageously astounding

I do think that "astounding" was an awesomelicious choice.

How could anyone ever pick the best???? Even the bad ones are good.

Joe

Bodaciolicious.

Gail: I had lunch with Joseph Pearce last Friday, and he said that he, Dale Ahlquist, and Aidan Mackey each chose twenty (or so) of their favorite Chesterton essays, then compared choices. There was apparently several overlaps. I've not yet seen the book, so don't know what the essays are. But, as the blurb states, some of them are rare and not easily found outside this collection, which consists of close to sixty essays.
