This innovative biography recreates the life of C.S. Lewis with striking impact. The biographer allows the reader direct access to the man. He provides a narrative in which Lewis speaks for himself at every turn. This book brings to life a vivid and multi-faceted portrait of Lewis - a thousand scenes flash by like frames on the screen. From the pages of this book, he emerges as an active, energetic man, who handled personally an amazing range of correspondence, who looked like a farmer but talked like a philosopher, who relished the love of friends, who was surprised by the love of a woman, and who cultivated the love of God. 'Lewis walks onto the stage...speaking as if in a one-character show, and holds our attention...to the very end of the book.', says "Chicago Tribune".
