The Flying Inn  (1914) 
by Gilbert Keith Chesterton

The Flying Inn is a novel first published in 1914 by G. K. Chesterton. It is set in a future England where a "progressive" form of Islam has triumphed and now dominates the political and social life of the country. Because of this, alcohol sales are prohibited. The plot centers around the adventures of Humphrey Pump and Captain Patrick Dalroy, who roam the country in their alcohol-laden cart in an attempt to evade the Prohibition.Excerpted from The Flying Inn on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
