This is the true story of C.S. Lewis - one of the greatest writers of the 20th-century - whose books for children and adults have become much loved classics.


Part of the story of C.S. Lewis has been made famous through the film 'Shadowlands'. Here this fascinating man's entire life story is told by those who knew him personally.


C.S. Lewis was born in Belfast in 1898 and was sent to England for a public school education with his elder brother, Warren. Lewis exhibited a genius for imagination and perception from his earliest years. Brought up in a Christian household, Lewis lost his faith in his teenage years but was to regain it, with reluctance, as a fellow at Magdalen College, Oxford. His faith subsequently influenced his writings. He became a vigorous champion of the Christian faith through classics such as 'Mere Christianity' and through his BBC broadcasts.


His 'Chronicles of Narnia' became children's classics and he was deluged with correspondence from his young readers.


In his latter years he unexpectedly fell deeply in love with a divorced American, Joy Greshem, and married her, only to suffer the devastation of her death a few years later. C.S. Lewis died in 1963 at his home in Oxford.


During his lifetime C.S. Lewis suggested to his friend, Roger Lancelyn Green, who was a fellow English scholar, that he would undertake his biography one day. After Lewis's death in 1963 Lancelyn Green and Walter Hooper were approached by several of Lewis's friends to write the biography. Warren Lewis, brother to Jack, contributed a great deal to the writing. The authors had at their disposal a vast collection of letters and diaries, as well as the recollections of many surviving family members and friends.


Walter Hooper has enhanced the original text with additional material to provide a new, expanded edition which all C.S. Lewis fans will be keen to own.


. Continuing enthusiasm for Lewis in the UK, and particularly in the U.S.


. Broad appeal as 20th century figure who has made a major impact through his children's and adult titles - especially with the Chronicles of Narnia.


. Fascinating story of achievement and fame, struggles and pain, love and sorrow.

Roger Lancelyn Green

Roger Lancelyn Green was born in England in 1918, where his family has lived for more than 900 years. He was often sick as a child and spent long periods confined to his room devouring Greek myths, medieval romances, and fairy tales. Green began a lifelong fascination with Greece and Greek culture when he first visited that country in 1935. He went on to compile and retell many Greek stories, including "Old Greek Fairy Tales," and "Jason and the Golden Fleece." Green also wrote his own stories, but he is better known for his retellings of folk tales from around the world. Roger Lancelyn Green died in 1987

Walter Hooper

Walter Hooper is an eminent Lewis scholar, a trustee of the Lewis Estate, and the editor of "Letters of C.S. Lewis." He lives in Oxford, England.
