"Have you ever noticed this—that people never answer what you say?
They answer what you mean—or what they think you mean."
—— Father Brown, The Invisible Man



這本大全集蒐羅了所有的布朗神父探案,包括兩則先前企鵝出版社未能出版的故事〈唐寧頓事件〉(The Donnington Affair),這則原由麥斯.潘柏頓(Max Pemberton)起草卻未能完稿的作品,卻斯特頓勇於接受這項挑戰,接手文稿並順利的完成了這部懸疑推理作品。另一部則是〈邁達斯的面具〉(The Mask of Midas),這則遺珠因後人整理卻斯特頓的遺稿而得以重見天日,同時也為五十三則布朗神父探案畫下完美的句點。本書另外收錄劍橋大學(University of Cambridge)英美語系講師麥克.赫利(Michael D. Hurley)所撰寫的導讀與註釋。

The complete adventures of the well-loved clerical sleuth, collected in one brilliant volume.

Shabby and lumbering, with a face like a Norfolk dumpling, Father Brown makes for an improbable super-sleuth. But his innocence is the secret of his success: refusing the scientific method of detection, he adopts instead an approach of simple sympathy, interpreting each crime as a work of art, and each criminal as a man no worse than himself.

This complete edition brings together all of the Father Brown stories, including two not previously available in Penguin: 'The Donnington Affair', in which Chesterton rises to the challenge of solving a murder-mystery half written by someone else (Max Pemberton), and 'The Mask of Midas', which was found in Chesterton's papers after his death. It also includes an introduction and notes by Michael D. Hurley.
吉爾柏特.卻斯特頓 G.K. Chesteron (1874/05/29—1936/06/14)
吉爾柏特生於1874年英國肯辛頓(Kensington),畢業於史雷德藝術學校(Slade School of Art),就讀期間卻斯特頓曾出現精神崩潰的狀況,隨後因受邀為雜誌撰寫藝術評論,因而決定投入新聞產業。做為一位多產的作家,卻斯特頓一生寫下八十餘部書籍、百餘首詩作、兩百多部短篇小說以及高達四千餘篇的隨筆散文;當中以其代表作「布朗神父」推理系列聞名於世,首開以犯罪心理學方式推理案情之先河,與福爾摩斯注重物證推理的派別分庭抗禮。

卻斯特頓筆下著名作品另有1904年發表的《諾丁山的拿破崙》(The Napoleon of Notting Hill)、1908年《曾是星期四的男人》(The Man Who Was Thursday)以及1922年所發表的《知道太多的人》(The Man Who Knew Too Much)等作品。卻斯特頓後於1936年06月14日早晨因慢性心臟衰竭過世。

G.K. Chesteron was born in 1874. He attended the Slade School of Art, where he appears to have suffered a nervous breakdown, before turning his hand to journalism. A prolific writer throughout his life, his best-known books include The Napoleon of Notting Hill (1904), The Man Who Knew Too Much (1922), The Man Who Was Thursday (1908) and the Father Brown stories. Chesterton converted to Roman Catholicism in 1922 and died in 1938.

全新 The Complete Father Brown Stories 大全集。因為布朗神父著重於犯罪心理學,也因此本書有著許多極富哲理與犯罪心理的評論,更多的是值得我們暫時擱下書本、沏茶深思的觀點。

"How do you know all this?" he cried.
"Are you a devil?"
"I am a man," answered Father Brown gravely;
"and therefore have all devils in my heart"
