    Author Information
    Born in Ireland in 1898, Clive Staples Lewis gained a triple First at Oxford and was Fellow and Tutor at Magdalen College from 1925-54, where he was a contemporary of Tolkien. In 1954 he became Professor of Mediaeval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge. C. S. Lewis was for many years an atheist, until his conversion, memorably described in his autobiography 'Surprised by Joy': "I gave in, and admitted that God was God ... perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England." He is celebrated for his famous series of children's books, the Narnia Chronicles (which have been filmed and broadcast many times), as well as his literary criticism and science fiction. C. S. Lewis died on 22nd November 1963.
    Review quote
    'He has a quite unique power for making theology an attractive, exciting and fascinating quest.' Times Literary Supplement 'I read C. S. Lewis for comfort and pleasure.' John Updike 'C. S. Lewis is the ideal persuader for the half convinced.' Anthony Burgess 'I think it unlikely that other books as generally entertaining... will be as generally instructive.' W. H. Auden 'He is admirably equipped to write spiritual biography for the plain man, for his outstanding gift is clarity.' Sunday Times
