How do you train an apprentice demon?
How best to assure the damnation of an ordinary young man?
This classic has entertained and enlightened millions of readers with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life from the vantage point of Screwtape, a demon and highly placed assistant to ‘Our Father Below.’ Written for J.R.R. Tolkien, this masterpiece of satire is wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original. Through the correspondence of worldly-wise Screwtape to this nephew Wormwood, a novice demon, C.S. Lewis shows us his darkest and most playful work.
‘This book is sparkling, yet truly reverent, in fact a perfect joy, and should become a classic.’ – Guardian
