C.S. Lewis's dazzling allegory about heaven and hell - and the chasm fixed between them - is one of his most brilliantly imaginative tales, as he takes issue with the ideas in William Blake's `The Marriage of Heaven and Hell'.

In a dream, the narrator boards a bus on a drizzly afternoon and embarks on an incredible voyage through Heaven and Hell. He meets a host of supernatural beings far removed from his expectations, from the disgruntled, ghostly inhabitants of Hell to the angels and souls who dwell on the plains of Heaven.

This powerful, exquisitely written fantasy is one of C.S. Lewis's most enduring works of fiction and a profound meditation on good and evil.

`The Great Divorce ... helped me see the possibility of a really adult faith that did not avoid the toughest questions about failure and self-deception and pointed to a God absolutely and unconditionally loving and utterly, painfully, demanding in his truthfulness.'
Rowan Williams

`There is attractive imagery and amusing satire... There are exciting speculations... Mr. Lewis rouses curiosity about life after death only to sharpen awareness of this world.' The Guardian
