About Book

Book Description
"These tales concern the doing of things recognised as impossible to do; impossible to believe." Tales of the Long Bow are eight ingenious episodes concerning people who do things that are proverbially impossible. The teasing intricacy of their interlocking narratives heightens the excitement, yet the tales are simple and vivid. Never far from the politics and economics of contemporary Britain, they contain subtle and engaging portraits of leading figures such as Lord Eden, Harold and Oliver Green.

Download Description
These tales concern the doing of things recognized as impossible to do; impossible to believe; and, as the weary reader may well cry aloud, impossible to read about. Did the narrator merely say that they happened, without saying how they happened, they could easily be classified with the cow who jumped over the moon or the more introspective individual who jumped down his own throat.

About the Author
G K Chesterton has been described as one of the most unjustly neglected writers of our time. Born in 1874, he became a journalist and later began writing books and pamphlets. His work includes novels, literary and social criticism, political papers and spiritual essays in a style characterised by enormous wit, paradox, humility and wonder.

He converted to Catholicism in 1922 and he explores the nature of spirituality in many of his books and essays, including the mighty Orthodoxy.

Chesterton is one of the few authors who are genuinely timeless and whose work has as much relevance today as when it was written.
