Summary, etc.:
Hardly anyone who knew Jack [the name Lewis was known by] in the late 1940s would have expected him to become a beloved children's author. One good friend, an early pupil, said afterward that "in all my acquaintance with [Jack] he never revealed his imaginative side."... But the important thing was that Jack had never lost touch with the child in himself, although he did not share this side of himself with many people. He... still read children's books. Step through the other side of the wardrobe and meet the creator of The Chronicles of Narnia - the man whose rich imagination and deep faith made this fantasy series a favorite for generations. This biography, originally published in 1998 as C. S. Lewis: Christian and Storyteller, has been completely reformatted and now includes more than 50 photographs. It tells the story of C. S. Lewis's life and work, from his boyhood in Belfast, Ireland, where he and his brother created their first imaginary world in an attic hideaway, to Lewis's adult years as a renowned scholar and beloved author.
