James T. Como (editor), “C.S. Lewis at the Breakfast Table and Other Reminiscences”

This book is a series of vignettes by people who knew C.S. Lewis personally.  What a wonderful man:  generous, talkative, unpretentious, positive — a real role model.  And there is material of interest beyond his personality in here:  Jacques Barzun was a fan, Lewis accepts original sin because Paul seemed to (159), Lewis did not think much of Kierkegaard (169) (but beware, since this is hearsay, and some of the reminiscences contradict others).
