Manalive by G.K. Chesterton
This classic novel by Chesterton tells the rollicking tale of Innocent Smith, a man who may be crazy—or he may be the most sane man of all. Arriving at a London boarding house accompanied by a windstorm, Innocent is soon accused of attempted murder, burglary, polygamy, and deserting his wife. As the residents of Beacon House try to piece together what this madman is up to, a detective is called upon to unravel the accusations against Smith. Actor Kevin O’Brien of the "Theater of the Word" gives a dramatic reading of the text.
