Description
Information
Tolkien There are few writers who can claim the popularity and enduring appeal of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. His celebrated novels have sold in excess of 160 million copies, and are in large part responsible for seeding the entire genre of fantasy fiction.

Now, renowned biographer Michael White looks back at the little-know life of this most treasured of writers. In absorbing and revealing detail, he chronicles Tolkien's childhood years in South Africa and the West Midlands; the tragic early death of his parents; his burgeoning romance with Edith Brett; his many years as an Oxford academic; his friendship with CS Lewis and the founding of The Inklings' Group.

Informed and entertaining, this is the fascinating story of how the man who created 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord Of The Rings' became one of the giants of modern literature.
