C. S. Lewis and D. L. Sayers: A Feisty Friendship


Crystal Downing


David Downing

C. S. Lewis’s stepson reports that the very first time he saw Lewis cry was at the death of Dorothy L. Sayers. This session offers background on Sayers, whom Lewis considered one of England’s greatest letter writers, before providing a dramatic reading of the sometimes contentious, often humorous correspondence between Sayers and Lewis.
