Disconnected Parties: C.S. Lewis and His Father

Michael McCrary (not, I believe, the former All-Pro defensive end) has an extremely interesting essay in the C. S. Lewis collection assembled by Douglas Gresham over at Into the Wardrobe.

McCrary's focus is the strained and sad relationship between Lewis and his amiable, eloquent court solicitor father, Albert. Reading the essay is a few minutes well served, not only for those who are enticed by all things Lewis, but for those who desire to effect better communications with their own friends and family. Good stuff. And a terrific website.
