G.K. Wednesday

Background: When I was the editor of Gilbert Magazine, I was responsible for the “Tremendous Trifles” column. It was occasionally hard to find a sufficient amount of interesting GKC material to fill the page, so John Peterson sent me a file full of Chesterton ancedotes. They were idiosyncratic, historical, and Chestertonian. He gave me permission to use them here. I hope y’all find them as interesting as I have over the years. Most of them have never been published.

Chesterton Short(s)

In a 1989 interview reported in the Norwegian periodical magazine litteraire, author Umberto Eco revealed that he had built his 1989 novel Foucault’s Pendulum upon a statement by G. K. Chesterton that “Those who cease to believe in God do not believe in nothing; they believe in anything!” [September 6, 1989, p. 46]

    Can you put the background at the bottom? I read it every week in my RSS and I’m halfway through it before realizing I’ve already read it. Thanks!
