A subtle and poignant portrayal of the creator of The Chronicles of Narnia.
Brilliant. Agnostic. Prejudiced. Gregarious. Bullying. Loyal friend. Heavy drinker. One of the most learned scholars of his generation. A controversial Christian apologist. Author of a children's fantasy that has sold millions upon millions of copies. And, after his death, almost a cult figure. C. S. Lewis was an incredibly complicated man, and, as revealed in this splendid biography, a mystery to those who knew him best. I know of no modern biographer who equals Wilson's delicacy of touch and sensitivity to human quandaries. An astonishing book. Leon Edel The mixture presented in Wilson's biography of the life of learning...of domestic drama and bad temper, religion, and sex, is irresistible. New York Review of Books 8 pages of black and white illustrations
