From the hot creation by way of Andrew Greeley:
"This publication had a decisive impression on me and on my existence whilst I learn it on the age of sixteen—and no longer only simply because my fictional detective Blackie Ryan is an American cousin of GKC's Father Brown. Ms. Ward's biography brought me not just to an international of literature of which I were unaware, yet to a standpoint on literature and existence which was once vastly beautiful since it proven a number of the insights, instincts, dispositions, biases, and loves which have been knocking round in my adolescent cranium. i've been a Chestertonian all my existence partially simply because I have been one with no understanding it even earlier than I learn Ms. Ward's biography."
