Yes, autumn is really the best of the seasons: and I m not sure that old age isn t the best part of life. But of course, like Autumn, it doesn t last.
What better way to know a writer s innermost thoughts than by reading their letters? This volume collects C.S. Lewis s correspondence with family, friends, and fans, and spans from his youth as a student to just a few weeks before his death. Witness his conversion from atheism to Christianity, as well as his thoughts on books, nature, humanity, and God.
Introduced and edited by Walter Hooper, this volume includes selected entries from Lewis's own diary, and Warnie Lewis's fascinating memoir of his brother's life.
"If wit and wisdom, style and scholarship are requisites to passage through the pearly gates, Mr. Lewis will be among the angels." The New Yorker"

Book Description Harvest Books January 2003, 2003. Paper Back. Book Condition: New. Go ahead, open it anywhere. We guarantee you will be entranced, trapped, intrigued by whatever glimpse of the man and his life you open to. Whether he is writing about a rabbit on his estate, or asking Sister Penelope to keep the manuscript of The Screwtape Letters until after the book is printed, after which time ''it can be used to wipe up spills or stuff dolls or anything,'' or musing over the question of whether to say God the Son became Man or became a man, Lewis's delightful, infinite fascination with things is conveyed, his humor ever-present, his depth and wide range of reading absolutely astounding, his careful attention to the most humble and anonymous of correspondents (of which there were literally hundreds) an index of an unassuming depth of Christian compassion. The letters cover most of Lewis's life, from his eighteenth year to just a few weeks before his death in November, 1963. Bookseller Inventory # 88857
