This acclaimed biography charts the progress of the brilliant, prolific writer, C. S. Lewis. C. S. Lewis was a deeply complex man, capable of inspiring both great devotion and great hostility. This acclaimed biography charts the progress of the clever child from the 'Little End Room' of his Ulster childhood and adult life, exploring Lewis's unwilling conversion to Christianity, the genesis of his writing, and the web of his relationships. Known details of the Christian apologist's life, a veritable Freudian case history, appear along with fresh insights about his Oxford circle, the Inklings, and his friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien.
