THE MAGICIAN'S BOOK is the story of a single particular reader's long, tumultuous relationship with C. S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia. What she discovers is not the familiar, idealized image from the author, but a a lot far 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, as nicely as the imagination. Enchanted by its fantastic world as a child, prominent critic Laura Miller returns to the series as an adult to uncover the supply of these small books' mysterious power by looking at their creator, Clive Staples Lewis.
