Language: English. They had slid in and out of dismal and deserted rooms in search of particular newspapers or private needlework. It was round about this place that some poet, probably drunk, looked up astonished at all those streets gone skywards, and thinking vaguely of glaciers and roped mountaineers gave it the name of Swiss Cottage, which it has never been able to shake off. Then the unexpected happens: Smith shoots at one of the tenants, and two doctors arrive to arrest him, claiming that he's a bigamist, an attempted murderer, and a thief. This, which is true of all the churches and republics of history, is also true of the most trivial parlour game or the most unsophisticated meadow romp. This, which is true of all the churches and republics of history, is also true of the most trivial parlour game or the most unsophisticated meadow romp.

For those who have found the world of electronic book reading, you'll be pleased to see these same works available as Catholic e-books. Arriving at a dreary London boarding house accompanied by a windstorm, Smith is an exuberant, eccentric and sweet-natured man. Swaggering on short legs with a prosperous purple tie, he was the gayest of godless little dogs; but like a dog also in this, that however he danced and wagged with delight, the two dark eyes on each side of his protuberant nose glistened gloomily like black buttons. By a fortunate physical provision, most very substantial creatures are also reposeful; and middle-class boarding-houses in the lesser parts of London are not built for a man as big as a bull and excitable as a kitten. He has a picnic — on the roof! Catechisms and spiritual writers are important, but men need stories too.

If a whale could leap from the sea like a trout, perhaps men might look up and see one soaring above Yarmouth like the winged island of Laputa. All seems to be well with the world. During his first day in residence the eccentric Smith creates the High Court of Beacon; arranges to elope with Mary Gray, paid companion to heiress Rosamund Hunt; inspires Inglewood to declare his love for Diana Duke, the landlady's niece; and prompts a reconciliation between jaded journalist Michael Moon and Rosamund. Enjoy a picnic on the roof and then leave home just for the sake of returning home.

Manalive book

Most recently updated: January 28, The software we use sometimes flags "false positives" -- that is, blocks that should not have occurred.

Manalive is the story of Innocent Smith, a colossal and comic man who bounds onto the grounds of Brighton House — a manor filled with those who have forgotten the immediacy of existence — and proceeds to awaken life into its residents.

It is a knowledge unsullied by cynicism. This fact, in truth, was typical of the whole episode. The visitor created an atmosphere of comic crisis; and from the time he came into the house to the time he left it, he somehow got the company to gather and even follow though in derision as children gather and follow a Punch and Judy.

The second part, "The Explanations of Innocent Smith", follows the trial. The flying blast struck London just where it scales the northern heights, terrace above terrace, as precipitous as Edinburgh. Before Smith can be taken to a jail or an asylum, Michael Moon declares that the case falls under the purview of the High Court of Beacon and suggests that the household investigate the matter before involving the authorities or the press.

But it is his own house. The only third thing is to marry yourself— yourself, yourself, yourself—the only companion that is never satisfied— and never satisfactory.

Manalive, First Edition

In a million holes and corners it refreshed a man like a flagon, and astonished him like a blow. And how do the other characters react to Innocent Smith?

He was too large for everything, because he was lively as well as large. Jean-Charles Nault. That fat, faint lady could only goggle up like a dying fish at the enormous new gentleman, who politely offered himself as a lodger, with vast gestures of the wide white hat in one hand, and the yellow Gladstone bag in the other.
