In honor of “Shadowlands” reopening in London next week, Guardian Unlimited has posted a fantastic article, written by Douglas Gresham, about the famous author. “The now famous play Shadowlands, which is about to reopen in London’s West End, is one of many pieces about my late stepfather, C. S. Lewis. There have been books (many books, of which I have perpetrated two), plays, movies and even songs written about him. They vary between good, bad and ugly, most of them written by people who either barely knew him or never knew him at all. They can tell you (with varying degrees of inaccuracy) what he was, where he was, when he was and what he did, but almost none of them are able to tell you who he was.” Read the whole article here.
