The Napoleon of Notting Hill - G. K. Chesterton - The Napoleon of Notting Hill is a novel written by G. K. Chesterton in 1904, set in a nearly unchanged London in 1984. Although the novel is set in the future, it is, in effect, set in an alternative reality of Chesterton's own period, with no advances in technology nor changes in the class system nor attitudes.

Known primarily for his non-fiction, G. K. Chesterton also wrote fiction. The Napoleon of Notting Hill and The Man Who was Thursday are two of his best-loved novels. The Napoleon of Notting Hill In Chesterton’s first novel, he conjures up a London neighborhood that has become an independent city, fond of pageantry and traditional ways, isolated by high walls from the rest of the world. When its rights and autonomy are threatened by modernizing neighbors, war breaks out. It is a war fought not with astounding new weapons, but with swords and battle-axes, and it is waged for a cause in which the author deeply believed. The Man Who was Thursday In Chesterton’s most famous novel, Detective Syme is determined to discover everything about a club of anarchists, so he decides to infiltrate the resistance group and then he unwittingly, and unwillingly, gets caught up suddenly and finds himself elected to their council!

This early novel is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. Written by the prolific English critic and author of novels, short stories, essays and verse, G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936), it is a futuristic novel set in 1984 in a London that has changed little from the date in which is was written, 1904. Chesterton s most accurate prediction was that in essence, people would not change, and would continue to regard government with indifference. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork."

When a new king is selected and Auberon Quin is randomly chosen, he institutes a series of reforms that many of his new leaders find boring and childish. While Quin enjoys a good joke, a young leader named Adam Wayne takes things very seriously even going to war with neighbouring boroughs. Although written mainly as a comedic work, Chesterton philosophically explores the actions of man and respect for each other.

In a London of the future, the drudgery of capitalism and bureaucracy have worn the human spirit down to the point where it can barely stand. When a pint-sized clerk named Auberon Quinn is randomly selected as head of state, he decides to turn London into a medieval carnival for his own amusement. One man, Adam Wayne, takes the new order of things seriously, organizing a Notting Hill army to fight invaders from other neighborhoods. At first his project baffles everyone, but eventually his dedication proves infectious, with delightful results. First published in 1904, The Napoleon of Notting Hill was Chesterton's first novel. It has been called the best first novel by any author in the twentieth century.
