"The Flying Inn" is a novel written and published by G.K. Chesterton in 1914. Chesterton, visionary and futurist aurora, has set this work in a future time: in the United Kingdom, a new and strange alliance between great financial powers and influential exponents of Islam leads to the introduction of harsh laws inspired by the Quran, among which the ban on selling and consuming alcohol.The protagonist of the affair, Mr. Pump, is therefore forced to close his business (due to these restrictive laws). He meets, soon, on his way the proud Irish captain Patrick Delroy with whom he joins a partnership: the two will supply the taverns with smuggled alcohol by exploiting a legal quibble ... A harsh criticism of prohibition and the risks posed, according to Chesterton, from an indiscriminate globalization. An avant-garde work.
