Product Description

Letters have a way of revealing a person's spirit and personality more than straightforward biographical facts and figures. This is especially true of Joy Davidman, who late in life married C.S. "Jack" Lewis. Out of My Bone, edited by Don W. King presents a unqiue portrait of the woman who captured Lewis' heart. Her letters to friends, her first husband, Jack and family reveal her keen wit, critical mind and poetic soul. A must read for fans of Davidman's writing, or those inpsired by Joy and Jack's devotion. Includes her autobiographical essay "The Longest Way Round."

Author Bio

Don W. King is professor of English at Montreat College and editor of Christian Scholar’s Review.He is the author of over 60 articles on C. S. Lewis, as well as C. S. Lewis, Poet and Hunting the Unicorn: A Critical Biography of Ruth Pitter.

Publisher Description

Though best known for being “Mrs. C. S. Lewis,” Joy Davidman was an accomplished writer in her own right with a fascinating story to tell. Out of My Bone tells this story in her own words through a collection of all her known letters — most previously unpublished — and her autobiographical essay “The Longest Way Round.”

These letters reveal Davidman’s persistent search for truth, her curious, incisive mind, and her clear and unique voice. They chronicle her religious, philosophical, and intellectual journey from secular Judaism to atheism to Communism to Christianity. Davidman discusses not only her marriage to Lewis, but her struggles in her earlier marriage, trying to reconcile her career goals with family life. Perhaps most intriguingly, especially for those familiar with Davidman through Shadowlands, these letters allow readers a glimpse into her confrontation — mental, emotional, and spiritual — with the cancer that eventually took her life.

This captivating collection reveals with rare insight the woman who inspired Lewis’s later writings, including Surprised by Joy and Till We Have Faces.
