"Impossible Possibilities" is composed of five zany, fun, penetrating and insightful very short stories that have echoes for me of Chesterton's "The Napolean of Notting Hill." The stories can be read separately but they share characters and situations and also form a continuity while, as Chesterton did, illuminating issues that are contemporary. G.K. Chesterton is a writer that I never tire of and Gerry Bruen evokes Chesterton with a penetrating yet independent spirit of his own. So if you want something that will make you smile but also make you think, if you want something to read after a quick lunch and ponder for the rest of the afternoon, if you want something at once startling yet on reflection insightful and food for deeper thought, then you can hardly do better than invest in this little book. After reading it perhaps you should think about reading "Tales of the Long Bow", "The Napolean of Notting Hill", and "Manalive": one or all would be a great follow-up to "Impossible Possibilities."
And if you read Gerry's book and are near enough to Sterling, VA on the requisite Saturdays then you should join the Chestertonians at Famous Dave's and hoist a beer or eat a rib in honor of GKC. To see what's coming up check out [...] for the latest on the D.C. Chesterton Society.
