Richard's explanation of the title The Want for Wonders

Here is the best way I can explain the book — by explaining the title.

The Want for Wonders

That prince of paradox, G.K. Chesterton, famously said, "We are perishing for want of wonder, not for want of wonders." At first glance, it is puzzling, even confounding sentence. As its meaning is unravelling, it reveals layers of increasing hope, faith and unfettered optimism.

Hinging on the double meaning of two words, both "want" and "wonder," Chesterton is saying there is no lack of the fantastic in today's world if only we could choose to see it. But our biggest problem, the thing that is causing us to perish, is that we do not wonder. We are satisfied with the ordinary.

A new novel explores this idea. Taking its title from the Chesterton quote, The Want for Wonders tells the story of a man subtly driven by the desire to experience the fantastic. This isn't the search for meaning. This isn't the desire for deep truth. This quest is simply the need to be in the presence of greatness, the fantastic, the wonders that dwarf the mundane and bring us up to a new level of awareness.

It is the want that drives us.
