The Man Who Was Thursday

The little blurb on the cover says it's, "the most thrilling book I've ever read" and the quote is by Kingsley Amis so it must be true, right? Just two pages in, the ever quotable Mr. Chesterton has provided me with something I'd like to share:

Most of the women were of the kind vaguely called emancipated, and professed some protest against male supremacy. Yet these new women would always pay to a man the extravagant compliment which no ordinary woman ever pays to him, that of listening while he is talking."
