Colin Duriez
The C.S. Lewis Chronicles
The Indispensable Biography of the Creator of Narnia Full of Little-Known Facts, Events and Miscellany
Foreword by Brian Sibley

C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) is known around the world for his beloved and classic series The Chronicles of Narnia, which includes The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. One of the great writers and thinkers of modern times, he was an eminent scholar, who taught at Oxford and Cambridge, and a close friend of J.R.R. Tolkien.

The C.S. Lewis Chronicles takes a refreshingly different and highly illuminating approach to the life, thought, and work of this extraordinary man. It is both a greatly accessible and authoritative biography of Lewis, reconstructing his life and times in minute chronological detail— as well as an utterly intriguing and entertaining collection of little-known Lewis and Narnia miscellany and trivia.

A biography like no other, it provides invaluable and detailed insight into Lewis’s remarkable personal, creative, spiritual, and intellectual life and legacy, and is the perfect companion for every reader who cherishes his timeless words.

“This book incisively charts the journey of a lifetime—a journey eminently worthy of being followed.”
Brian Sibley, author of The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy

“If ever a biography deserved to be called ‘The Life and Times,’ this is the one.”
David C. Downing, author of Into the Wardrobe

“Duriezís C. S. Lewis Chronicles may employ the most unorthodox of biographical methods in getting there, but it delivers one of the most intimate and satisfactory pictures of C. S. Lewis that I have ever seen. I revelled in it and regard it as almost as jolly as actually being in the same room with him.”
Phyllis Tickle, author of The Divine Hours
