'Jack' details the great scholar's life at the Kilns; his career at Magdalen College; his relationship with Mrs Moore; meetings with the Inklings; marriage to Joy Davidman Gresham; and the creative process that produced such world famous works as the classic 'Chronicles Of Narnia', 'Mere Christianity' and 'The Screwtape Letters'.
Sayer shows us a Lewis who is very human, sometimes faulty or mistaken, but somehow all the greater for those weaknesses. This is a brilliant critical life with which to celebrate the centenary of Lewis's birth.
