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, Lewis created an impressive array of popular novels and academic studies. He was an eminent Oxford-based scholar and a close friend of J. R. R. Tolkien, author of The Lord of the Rings.
A biography like no other, The C. S. Lewis Chronicles takes a refreshingly different and highly illuminating approach to the life and times, thought and work of this extraordinary man. Both greatly accessible and authoritative, it reconstructs Lewis's life story in minute chronological detail-day by day, month by month, year by year, from the cradle to the grave-and is full of utterly entertaining and little-known Lewis and Narnia facts, miscellany and trivia.

Full of fun-facts, as the subtitle indicates, e.g. people born in a given year, historical events not directly connected with Lewis. Duriez has read all sorts of letters and diaries and includes many colorful details.

The chronological arrangement can be slightly confusing: the same date or event may occur twice in different contexts.
