letters to malcolm Reviews

'He always tells a good story, and this is a splendid, vehement one, full of stone and wind and spears in an old country, wet mist on the hills.... seems to sum up most of what Dr Lewis has been telling us for years.'
The Tablet

'One of the most eminently readable pieces of fiction that has come my way for a long time.'
Yorkshire Post

About C. S. Lewis

Born in Ireland in 1898, C S Lewis gained a triple First at Oxford and was Fellow and Tutor at Magdalen College from 1925-54. In 1954 he became Professor of Mediaeval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge. Lewis was for many years an atheist. He describes his conversion in Surprised by Joy: "In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God... perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England." One of the most gifted and influential Christian writers of our time, he is also celebrated for his Narnia chronicles and his literary criticism and science fiction. C S Lewis died on 22nd November 1963.
