Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Lewis was one of those high-powered, controversial and prophetic figures to whom no one can react with indifference. He was a fellow-traveller with fascism who wrote enthusiastically about Hitler . . . A toughy, you see: a would-be shocker: a braggart. But his eye for the comic surface of things is marvelous."—Philip Toynbee, The Observer

 

"The most fascinating personality of our time."—T.S. Eliot
