This is a series of letters from Screwtape, a devil high in the Infernal Civil Service, to his nephew Wormwood, a junior colleague engaged in his first mission on Earth trying to secure the damnation of a young man who has just become a Christian. Although the young man initially looks to be a willing victim, he changes his ways and is "lost" to the young devil.

‘The book is sparkling yet truly reverent, in fact a perfect joy, and should become a classic.’
‘Excellent, hard-hitting, challenging, provoking.’
A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world overwith its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and foibles from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to ‘Our Father Below’. At once wildly comic, deadly serious and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man.
Dedicated to Lewis’s friend and colleague J.R.R. Tolkien, 'The Screwtape Letters' is the most engaging account of temptation – and triumph over it – ever written.
