The letters collected here cover a vast range of subjects - books, nature, people, and every aspect of God and His world - and extend from C.S. Lewis's early days as a student and atheist up to a few weeks before his death. His correspondence with family, friends, and even fans, offers readers an opportunity to share Lewis's wit and originality. Introduced and edited by Walter Hooper, this volume represents an important revision to the colection of Lewis's letters published in 1966: several letters have been added, proper dates have been restored to some, correspondents' names to others. And, as in the original volume, selected entries from Lewis's own diary are included, as is Warnie Lewis's fascinating memoir of his brother's life.
"Yes, autumn is really the best of the seasons: and Im not sure that old age isnt the best part of life. But of course, like Autumn, it doesnt last."
