The fairy tale, he explains, "stirs and troubles him (to his life-long enrichment) with the dim sense of something beyond his reach and, far from dulling or emptying the actual world, gives it a new dimension of depth." He elaborates his favorite kinds of stories--children's stories and fantasies--and offers insights into his most famous works, The Chronicles of Narnia and the Space Trilogy. A must-read for fans of Lewis's creative works.
