Sidelights on London and Newer York
Chesterton, G.K. Sidelights on London and Newer York. First English Edition. 1932. Book in very good condition; dust jacket in very good minus condition.
In his time, G.K. Chesterton was thought to be a traditionalist and a bête noir to the avant-garde. Yet this book is more at home in the Twenty-First Century than much of what was once considered modern. It turns out that he was simply above fad and fashion. He was a master of paradox (and therefore the aphorism). This book is a collection of his essays, many of which concern Jazz Age Americans, their English counterparts, and the differences thereof.
