(1990)
A Biography
A non fiction book by

 
 
C.S.Lewis was a prolific writer and a man capable of inspiring both devotion and hostility. This book charts the progress of Lewis from Ulster to Oxford where he was a fellow of Magdalen College for the greater part of his adult life. The author describes Lewis' unwilling conversion to Christianity, the Oxford circle of his friends known as the "Inklings" and the basis of his writing. He also explores Lewis' relationship with Janie Moore, which kept him in domestic thrall for 30 years, and later his marriage to a divorced woman in defiance of the Church.
