About the Book

Manalive is a Comedy, Mystery novel written by English writer G. K. Chesterton. The book explores the "holy fool," a popular concept in both Religion and his own philosophy. There are two parts to this book. The first, "The Enigma of Innocent Smith," is about a new resident moving into a London boarding house called Beacon House. The trial is followed in the second part, "The Explanations of Innocent Smith." Moses Gould, a joyfully cynical Jew who resides at Beacon House who thinks Smith is at best a fool and at worst a crook, and Dr. Cyrus Pym, an American criminal expert appointed by Dr. Warner, make up the prosecution; Michael Moon and Arthur Inglewood represent the defense. The allegations against Smith are supported by letters from those who saw the alleged behavior in question or took part in it. Can Smith’s defendant prove him innocent or not? To open up the mystery, readers should go through the novel, Manalive.
