"A very personal, anguished, luminous little book about the meaning of death,
marriage, and religion."Publishers Weekly

"Reading A Grief Observed is to share not only in C. S. Lewis's grief, but in his understanding
of love, and that is richness indeed."Madeline L'Engle, from the foreword

"I read Lewis for comfort and pleasure many years ago, and a glance into the books revives my old
admiration."John Updike

Written after his wife's tragic death as a way of surviving the "mad midnight moments," A Grief
Observed
is C. S. Lewis's honest reflection on the fundamental issues of life, death, and faith in the
midst of loss. This work contains his concise, genuine reflections on that period: "Nothing will shake a
manor at any rate a man like meout of his merely verbal thinking and his merely notional beliefs.
He has to be knocked silly before he comes to his senses. Only torture will bring out the truth. Only
under torture does he discover it himself."

This is a beautiful and unflinchingly honest record of how even a stalwart believer can lose all sense of
meaning in the universe, and how he can gradually regain his bearings.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland and was educated at Cherbourg House, Malvern College, and Oxford. He was professor of medieval and renaissance English at the University of Cambridge. His conversion from atheism to Christianity in 1931 resulted in a flow of outstanding theological books, but it was The Chronicles of Narnia that he became best known for.

Ralph Cosham has acted in numerous roles for film and TV and in more than one hundred professional theater roles in addition to narrating books for Blackstone Audiobooks. He lives in Reston, Virginia.
