Description

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"
