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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The more biography he writes, the better he gets - his life of C. S. Lewis is his best yet. It's a vivacious and compassionate book. Wilson's range of interests - religious, literary, human-gossipy and Oxfordian - make him an ideal match for the subject.' Andrew Motion, Observer

'Passionate, perspicacious, funny and inevitably partisan.' Selina Hastings, Telegraph

'Wilson's biography is admirable, probably the best imaginable ... Mr Wilson is a brilliant biographer.' Anthony Burgess, Independent

'It seems fitting that A. N. Wilson should now have written the definitive biography of Lewis, and it is a superb job.' John Bayley, Guardian
