Overview

Discover the real C. S. Lewis—the man behind the remarkable enigma

Explore this sparkling new biography that brings out the significance of C. S. Lewis' key friendships, revealing their impact on his thoughts and writings. C. S. Lewis was one of the most high profile academics of his time. He saw the world as story-shaped and believed his imagination to be the center of his being. He was a man who was at home with ideas and debate and yet he valued friendship above all else, and not just with fellow intellectuals. Among his most important friendships were the other members of the Inklings. Drawing on the latest scholarship and previously unpublished material, this book delves into his remarkable life through these key people—those that knew him best.
