Summary:
"The Paradoxes of Mr. Pond is Chesterton's last work of fiction, but by no means his least. It consists of eight suspenseful stories featuring one of Chesterton's most delightful amateur sleuths, a deceptively "mild little man" who knows thoroughly the ways of the world and possesses the uncanny ability to make shrewd deductions and accurate intuitive guesses. Mr. Pond is also fond of making casual remarks that seem to be logical contradictions. Behind each of these paradoxes lies a mysterious and lighthearted tale superbly told."--Back cover.
