-----------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, signed and inscribed by Coren " Feb 02 To _____ MCoren", 140 pages, b&w photos, ---"The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Horse and His Boy, and the other books in C.S. Lewis's Narnia Chronicles are among the most beloved in children's literature. --In a strong and moving narrative, Narnia's readers are introduced to "Plain Jack" Lewis and are able to explore his life as a scholar, his friendships with writers such as J.R.R. Tolkien, the Christianity that underlies his writing, and the great love story of his final years. Lewis's personal story is as fascinating as the books with which he has delighted generations of readers. --Photographs of C.S. Lewis's world, from the grimy streets of Belfast and the horrors of trench warfare to the grandeur of Oxford and Cambridge, bring his story to vivid life and make this book as exciting to look at as it is informative to read. ---Michael Coren, an expert on the life and writings of Lewis, presents an engrossing biography for young people and adults of the man "who created Narnia". Following in the wake of the first of several theatrical major feature films from Lewis's "Chronicles of Narnia", this biography, lavishly illustrated with numerous photos from the whole life of Lewis, is written in a captivating way that it will appeal to all ages, youth and adults alike. Starting with "Beginnings", Coren tells of the fascinating details of the childhood and youth of Lewis, one that was, in Lewis's own words full of "long corridors, attics explored in solitude, sunlit rooms and endless books". It continues with his studies at Oxford, his subsequent celebrated teaching career at Oxford, his wonderful friendships with other great writers like J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, G.K. Chesterton and George Sayer, his meeting and marriage with Joy Davidman, and how he dealt with the sorrow of her death. The book especially focuses on how Lewis created his wonderful Narnia tales which became seven books that resulted in perhaps the most widely read set of children's Christian allegories, THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
