When Authors Speak for Themselves: Chesterton included

The Wall Street Journal speaks again about Chesterton, this time he is included in a collection of audio CDs of famous authors who are recorded saying something. Chesterton reportedly speaks on "The Spices of Life":
'G.K. Chesterton, too, comes off well. He starts out with precisely the sort of absurd gambit that one would expect from a writer of his impressive wit: "But while I should resist the suggestion that we must eat beef without mustard," he intones, "I do recognize that there is now a more subtle danger: that men may want to eat mustard without beef." What follows is an amusingly disjointed ramble about the "spices of life."'
