Gathered and expertly introduced by Don W. King, these letters reveal Davidman's persistent search for truth, her curious, incisive mind, and her arresting, sharply penetrating voice. They chronicle her religious, philosophical, and intellectual journey from secular Judaism to atheism to Communism to Christianity. Her personal engagement with large issues offers key insights into the historical milieu of America in the 1930s and 1940s. Davidman also writes about the struggles of her earlier marriage to William Lindsay Gresham and of trying to reconcile her career goals with her life as mother of two sons. Most poignantly, perhaps, these letters expose Davidmans mental, emotional, and spiritual state as she confronted the cancer that eventually took her life in 1960 at age 45.
Moving and riveting, Out of My Bone reveals anew the singular woman whom Lewis deeply loved and who influenced his later writings, especially Till We Have Faces.
These letters reveal Davidmans 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 Lewiss later writings, including Surprised by Joy and Till We Have Faces.
In this delightful and beautifully produced volume, Prof. King introduces, presents and unobtrusively annotates Davidmans collected letters, which span a period of twenty-four years, from 1936 to her death in 1960. . . . The portrait Davidmans letters paint is scintillating and many-layered, and displays the entire palette of a mind that Lewis justly described as lithe and quick and muscular as a leopard. Don Kings clear introduction and apparatus, and his pertinent, learned and unobtrusive annotations, make this a volume equally useful to the scholar and the general reader. It cannot be recommended warmly enough.
