      Mari -

      My offhand recollection is that Lewis only vaguely alludes to Tolkien's
      role in his conversion in _Surprised by Joy_, saying that Tolkien and
      Dyson were among the Christians whom he befriended at Oxford in the
      1920s. His detailed account of the conversation on Christianity and
      myth comes in a couple of letters he wrote soon afterwards to Arthur
      Greeves.
