C. S. Lewis reworks the timeless myth of Cupid and Psyche into an enduring piece of contemporary fiction in this novel about the struggle between sacred and profane love. Set in the pre-Christian world of Glome on the outskirts of Greek civilization, it is a tale of two princesses: the beautiful Psyche, who is loved by the god of love himself, and Orual, Psyche’s unattractive and embittered older sister who loves Psyche with a destructive possessiveness. Her frustration and jealousy over Psyche’s fate sets Orual on the troubled path of self-discovery. Lewis’ last work of fiction, this is often considered his best by critics.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Exerts, far beyond most novels, that combination of…wonder and attraction.” New York Times
“The most significant and triumphant work that Lewis has…produced.” New York Herald Tribune
“In Mr. Lewis’ sensitive hands the ancient myth retains its fascination while being endowed with new meanings, new depths, new terrors.” Saturday Review
“Whenever [Wanda McCaddon] reads, a sensation of comfort creeps into the atmosphere. Her vocal clarity and understanding of the author’s meaning bring pleasure and even security to the listening of each work.” AudioFile
“[McCaddon’s] reading is well paced, her voice light, soft, or strained as the action waxes and wanes.” Kliatt

Author Bio: C. S. Lewis

Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. His major contributions to literary criticism, children’s literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim. Lewis wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include the Chronicles of Narnia, Out of the Silent PlanetThe Four LovesThe Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity.
