VINTAGE PAPERBACK [1984] HARVEST / HARCOURT BRACE JOVANOVICH

Great reading copy w/ some light wear to cover.


A partial autobiography describing Lewis' conversion to Christianity. The book overall contains less detail concerning specific events than typical autobiographies. This is because his purpose in writing wasn't primarily historical. His aim was to identify & describe the events surrounding his accidental discovery of & consequent search for the phenomenon he labelled "Joy".
