20208Mention of Lewis in article in The New Yorker
- Dec 4, 2008Does anyone have any comment about this mention of Lewis in a review (by
Adam Gopnik) of two new biographies of Samuel Johnson in the December 4, 2008
issue of The New Yorker?:
The mention is on page 95 in the magazine. In the online version, click
forward to page 5. The one sentence where Lewis is mentioned is this:
> Compare him with C. S. Lewis, who modelled himself on Johnson, and werecall that Lewis, too, becomes
> human when at the end of his life he wanted something, the physical loveof his American mistress.
You may want to read the context of this sentence though.
