Douglas Gresham claims that Jack Lewis was the finest man and the best Christian he has ever known. Of course, Jack to Douglas is C. S. Lewis to the rest of the world. The informal address Gresham uses to refer to the great writer is indicative of the intimacy he shared with Lewis for a dozen years, living in England as Lewis's stepson.Jack's Life is an affectionate account of days now long gone.

"There are several good biographies of C.S. Lewis, or 'Jack,' as he preferred to be called . . . yet only two of them were written by people who actually knew him." Douglas Gresham, beloved stepson of C.S. Lewis and author
  NoraLarabeeLibrary | Sep 1, 2020 |
A short book by the step-son of C.S.Lewis, Jack's Life is a biography a little different than the usual biography of parents, childhood, adult, and then the inevitable end we see so often. It is instead an insider's view of what C.S.Lewis was to live with and how he was a man of honor such that he was able to take a family, not his own, to adulthood; support another family, again not his own, to their adulthood and meanwhile write and teach and think. Quite a story, but this book is really only a preface for a longer biography that would be worth reading . 3 1/2 stars ( )

C. S. Lewis' stepson have written a very warm and friendly portrait of the Christian writer and professor - best known for the Narnia-stories.

This is not a book that explores the writer C. S. Lewis and his many books. It's more about the daily life of Lewis, his brother, Mrs. Moore and life at "The Kilns" where he stayed most of his life, the meetings with The Inklings, and then his relationship/marriage late in life with Joy Gresham.

It's written in a very laid-back, talkative tone - like a grandfather who sits by the fire and recollect stories about his friend. It could easily be read by young people.

I was struck by how much he suffered throughout his life - first as a neglected child, then as a World War I-wounded and then his daily worries about money, health, the demanding Mrs Moore and his alcoholic brother. How he managed to write so many books and letters during all of this is remarkable.

A good, short book that can be recommended for Lewis-fans. ( )

A personal compilation of memories and observations by Jack's step-son. Very interesting perspective. ( )

FOREWORD [by Christopher W. Mitchell]
One of the most persistent misconceptions about the man C. S. Lewis is that for the greater part of his life he lived safely cloistered away from the typical cares and burdens of normal everyday life.
PREFACE
There are several good biographies of C. S. Lewis, or "Jack" as he preferred to be called (if you want to know why, then read this book), and so you might wonder why I would want to write yet another one.
