Summary :

The Man Who was Thursday set the standard for several generations of spy novels, blending the absurd and the reasonable smoothly all along a twisting plot. Telling of the investigations of the philosophical police into the dealings of the anarchist high council of England, it quickly turns the reader on his head, and keeps turning. Quickly, the criminal plot turns philosophical, or the philosophy into a criminal plot, taking the crime novel element of surprise to a surreal counterpoint.
