The White Witch. Aslan. fauns and talking beasts. centaurs and epic battles between good and evil — these have become a part of our collective imagination through the classic volumes of The Chronicles of Narnia. Yet who was the man who created this world? This audio book attempts to unearth the making of the first Narnian. C. S. Lewis himself.One of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential religious writer of his day. Lewis was also an Oxford don and a scholar of medieval literature who loved to debate philosophy at his local pub. Yet one of the most intriguing aspects of Clive Staples Lewis remains unanswered. How did a bachelor professor. nearly fifty. and living in a wholly adult world. turn to the writing of stories for children — stories that would become among the most popular and beloved ever written?Alan Jacobs masterfully tells the story of C. S. Lewis. From his childhood days in Ireland to his horrific experiences in the trenches of the First World War. to his friendship with J. R. R. Tolkein (and other members of the „Inklings”) and his remarkable late-life marriage to Joy Davidman. Jacobs traces the events and people that shaped Lewis’s philosophy. theology. and fiction. The story of a profound mind and extraordinary imagination. The Narnian is a remarkable tale of a man who knew great loss and great delight. but who knew above all that the world holds far more richness and meaning than the average eye can see.

Grammy Award Nominee for Best Spoken Word Album!”If you were to rush in to this room right now and announce that you had struck a deal-with God. Allah. Buddha. Christ. Krishna. Bill Gates. whomever-in which the ten years since my diagnosis could be magically taken away. traded in for ten more years as the person I was before. I would. without a moment’s hesitation. tell you to take a hike.” In September 1998. Michael J. Fox stunned the world by announcing that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease — a degenerative neurological condition. In fact. he had been secretly fighting it for seven years. The worldwide response was staggering. Fortunately. he had accepted the diagnosis. and by the time the public started grieving for him. he had stopped grieving for himself. With the same passion. humor. and energy that he has invested in his dozens of performances over the last eighteen years. he tells the story of his life. his career. and his campaign to find a cure for Parkinson’s. Combining his trademark ironic sensibility and keen sense of the absurd. he recounts his life — from his childhood in western Canada to his meteoric rise in film and television which made him a worldwide celebrity. Most importantly. he writes of the last ten years. during which — with the unswerving support of his wife. family. and friends — he has dealt with his illness. He talks about what Parkinson’s has given him: the chance to appreciate a wonderful life and career. and the opportunity to help search for a cure and spread public awareness of the disease. He feels as if he is a very lucky man. indeed.
