All My Roads Before Me: The Diary of C.S. Lewis 1922-27.
by Lewis, C.S.

Publisher Information:
Harcourt Brace, New York: 1991.

A Fine copy in a Near Fine, unclipped dust jacket . This is Lewis's only autobiographical work other than "Surprised by Joy"; it begins when he is twenty-three and an atheist and covers much of his early life before he converted to Christianity. This is a detailed account of Lewis's twenties, during which, while living with Mrs. Janie Moore and her daughter Maureen, he struggled to win a fellowship at Oxford. Written at least partly for the entertainment of Moore (identified as "D"), the diary dwells on Lewis's friends, books, and reactions to the surrounding landscape, rarely on the inner circumstances that would soon prompt his conversion to Christianity. Lewis's diary does, however, furnish a vivid picture of post-World War I Oxford and helps explain the easy erudition he brought to such works as The Allegory of Love.
