Dedicated to his friend J.R.R. Tolkien, this masterful piece of satire has for 70 years entertained and enlightened millions with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life from the vantage point of the demon Screwtape. At once wildly comic and strikingly original, the correspondence of the worldly – wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood shows C.S. Lewis at his darkest and most playful.
‘This book is sparkling yet truly reverent, in fact a prefect joy, and should become a classic.’ -Guardian
‘Excellent, hard-hitting, challenging, provoking.’ – Observer
