Clive Staples Lewis ('Jack' to his friends) was an Irish-born British novelist best known for writing The Chronicles of Narnia, The Screwtape Letters, and The Space Trilogy.
Lewis was a close friend of J. R. R. Tolkien, and both authors were leading lights in the English faculty at Oxford University and members of the literary group known as the Inklings. He severed ties with the Church of Ireland in his youth, but due in large part to the influence of Tolkien and other friends, Lewis returned to Christianity at age 32. His newfound faith had a profound influence on his work, as is quite obvious from the Narnia Chronicles.
Lewis died on November 22, 1963 - the same day that John F. Kenedy was assassinated, so news of his death was largely ignored by the media.
Lewis's works have been translated into more than 30 languages and have sold millions of copies. The Chronicles of Narnia have been his most popular works and have been adapted to stage, TV, radio, and cinema.
