A scene from "The Man Who Was Thursday" by Reinier Sonneveld and Roy Bergsma. ‘Wij moeten energie worden, louter energie’, oppert de ‘valse’ professor de Worms tegen zijn collega’s (onder het genot van een glaasje absint). De afbeelding is een deels ingekleurde tekening, gebaseerd op een fragment uit hoofdstuk 8 van de roman, getiteld ‘De professor verklaart zich nader’.

Brief introduction to "The Man Who Was Thursday
The seven members of the Central Anarchist Council are named after the seven days of the week. The young poet Gabriel Syme manages to infiltrate their midst as Thursday, and thus begins a frenzied nightmare full of paradoxes and surprises. With this unique tale of criminals and sleuths, Chesterton has written a detective novel that ranks among the classics of its kind. - J. Wigman
