From the Publisher:
Traces the life of the twentieth-century Christian literary master, drawing on themes from the Narnia series to offer insight into Lewis's experiences, from his work as a medieval scholar to his role as a beloved children's book author.
Annotation:
Organized by theme rather than by timeline, this biography explores the influences in C. S. Lewis's life--from the colorful fantasies he spun as a child with his older brother Warnie to his association with the Inklings literary group--that led him to create his most famous work, the magical seven-book children's series the Chronicles of Narnia.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"Amidst a sea of entry-level Lewis portraits being published this fall, this more substantive book is for hard-core Lewis lovers eager to soak up historical minutiae and savor salient Lewis quotes for years to come." 07/25/2005

New Republic
"[A] fluent and sensible retelling of the main outlines of Lewis's life, with an emphasis on the interpretation of his fiction." - Richard Jenkyns 12/26/2005-01/09/2006
