Letters to An American Lady

Author: C.S. Lewis

Summary: A collection of over 100 letters that Lewis wrote to an American woman he never met. Ranging broadly in subject matter, the letters discuss topics as profound as the love of God and as frivolous as preferences in cats, offering a rare and private view of Lewis.

On October 26, 1950, C. S. Lewis wrote the first of more than a hundred letters he would send to a woman he had never met, but with whom he was to maintain a correspondence for the rest of his life.

Ranging broadly in subject matter, the letters discuss topics as profound as the love of God and as frivolous as preferences in cats. Lewis himself clearly had no idea that these letters would ever see publication, but they reveal facets of his character little known even to devoted readers of his fantasy and scholarly writings—a man patiently offering encouragement and guidance to another Christian through the day-to-day joys and sorrows of ordinary life.
