<p>G.K. Chesterton&rsquo;s <em>Wine, Water and Song</em> is a collection of poems and songs from his popular novel, <em>The Flying Inn</em>.</p><p><br /></p><p>A volume angling for the failure of the Temperance movement in England, <em>The Flying Inn</em> takes place in a future England where the ban on alcohol has allowed &ldquo;Progressive&rdquo; Islam to take over the country&rsquo;s social and political life. The story centers around two men who hope to unravel the corrupt political system and restore the legality of alcohol.</p><p>Featuring one of the most famous verses from Chesterton&rsquo;s canon, &ldquo;The Rolling English Road,&rdquo; the <em>Wine, Water and Song</em> collection is not only a wonderful tribute to the author&rsquo;s talent, but an acknowledgment of his political views toward Temperance in England.</p>
