Description - The Magician's Book by Laura Miller

THE MAGICIAN'S BOOK is the story of one reader's long, tumultuous relationship with C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia. Enchanted by its fantastic world as a child, prominent critic Laura Miller returns to the series as an adult to uncover the source of these small books' mysterious power by looking at their creator, Clive Staples Lewis. What she discovers is not the familiar, idealized image of the author, but a more interesting and ambiguous truth: Lewis's tragic and troubled childhood, his unconventional love life, and his intense but ultimately doomed friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien. Finally reclaiming Narnia 'for the rest of us', Miller casts the Chronicles as a profoundly literary creation, and the portal to a life-long adventure in books, art and the imagination.
