“With the passage of time fewer and fewer people remain alive who knew him as a living friend, and I therefore think it right and timely to record some of my memories of my relationship with the man and some aspects of his much longer friendship with my own father, with my mother, and his contemporaries throughout his life. It was through this friendship with my parents that C. S. Lewis became my godfather.” –Laurence Harwood, from the Introduction Laurence Harwood presents his memories and interactions with godfather C. S. Lewis, spanning Harwood’s early boyhood to young adulthood. Harwood’s recollections include letters received from Lewis, as well as memories of and letters between Lewis and Harwood’s father, Cecil Harwood, who, along with his wife, Daphne, was one of Lewis’s closest and long-time friends. This book contributes to a more complete portrait of Lewis and focuses on Lewis’s friendships with a boy and his father.
