Publisher's Description

On October 26, 1950, C. S. Lewis wrote the first of more than a hundred letters he would send to a woman he had never met, but with whom he was to maintain a correspondence for the rest of his life.

Ranging broadly in subject matter, the letters discuss topics as profound as the love of God and as frivolous as preferences in cats. Lewis himself clearly had no idea that these letters would ever see publication, but they reveal facets of his character little known even to devoted readers of his fantasy and scholarly writings -- a man patiently offering encouragement and guidance to another Christian through the day-to-day joys and sorrows of ordinary life.

Letters to an American Lady stands as a fascinating and moving testimony to the remarkable humanity and even more remarkable Christianity of C. S. Lewis, and is richly deserving of the position it now takes among the balance of his Christian writings.

Author Bio

C. S. Lewis (1898-1963) taught English literature at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities and wrote more than thirty influential scholarly and popular books. Among his many famous works are Mere Christianity,The Screw tape Letters, the Chronicles of Narniavolumes, Miracles, and Surprised by Joy.

Editorial Reviews

-- J. R. R. Tolkien
"Deeply interesting and very moving."

-- Robert Cromie in Chicago Tribune
"A literary gem."

-- Christianity Today
"The reader will discover testimony for the patient faith and generous life of the private man who was this century's most famous Christian apologist. . . . Lewis readers will treasure these letters for the glimpse they offer into the personal witness of the man."

    This review was written for Letters to An American Lady.
    C.S. Lewis' private correspondence is consistent with his books. This collection of responses sent to an American woman who initiated a correspondence with him shows his private thoughts and feelings, bringing to life the man who brought us Mere Christianity and The Chronicles of Narnia and other great books. This collection of letters provide a source of insight and teaching consistent with his work intended to be seen by the public. I bought this book to give away after re-reading a copy that I'd intended to give to someone else.
