Product Description

Were the posthumous books of C.S. Lewis at least partially forged? Lindskoog suspects that they were---and that the fraud has been promoted by public relations and protected by secrecy. Her gripping tale of literary detective work explores rumors of forgery, imposture, and cover-up, and offers unique insights into the relationship between Lewis and his brother. 432 pages, softcover from Mercer.

Publisher's Description

Within a few months of C. S. Lewis's death in 1963, certain facts about his life were already being fictionalized and his literary leavings were being contaminated with fakery. Year after year, the fraud has been promoted by public relations and protected by secrecy. Year after year, Lindskoog has explored the fraud further. The result is a gripping tale with an amazing cast of characters and new developments every year. This is scholarship packed with human interest and suspense.

    I read The CS Lewis Hoax many years ago, and this is an expanded version of that with more information. It is maddening that with evidence like this, something more hasn't been done for the sake of CS Lewis and his brother, and for truth's sake. Does anyone know if something has been done?? Do people still think Lewis wrote The Dark Tower? They must not know his books very well! I have also a copy of Major Warren Lewis' diary, "Brothers and Friends," and it is so pleasant to read. A window into their world. But Warren's name and character were slandered in a few of Walter Hooper's long and imaginative introductions to CS Lewis' books. This book tries to right some of these wrongs.
