Tolkien A Biography  $9.95 


TOLKIEN : A BIOGRAPHY - FIRST. NY: NAL, 2003. First Edition. 5 1/2 x 8 1/4. Trade Paperback. Remainder. Fine / Fine. ISBN: 0451212428. Tolkien: A Biography presents the man behind the myth. This fascinating and poignant portrait of Middle-earth's creator reveals the author's early childhood, tainted by the tragic deaths of his parents; the horrors he experienced as a soldier in the trenches of World War I; his career as one of England's most prominent scholars in the halls of Oxford University; his friendship with fellow author C.S. Lewis and the founding of the Inklings group; how The Lord of the Rings was usurped by the 1960s counterculture movement only to bestow unwanted wealth and fame upon Tolkien - and how, three decades after his death, his greatest work was translated into a trilogy of blockbuster films converting new fans to an ever-increasing legion of devotees. 292 pp.
